youtube the amazing
AP found this beauty yesterday. it’s amazing how familiar these images are. 80 years after this film was made, i rode up the river in dugout canoes and watched as the men hauled the boats up over the rocks. i washed with a calabash + helped make cassava bread. one note–the film uses the term “Djuka” for all of the Suriname maroons. watch to the end; there’s dancing.
Amazing indeed! You must have been in tears. I was expecting Andy’s dance at the end.
