Duka's Dilemma

Aquí es donde Jynn Lydall muestra qué se puede hacer cuando se forma amistades verdaderas con gente durante el trabajo de campo. La escena del nacimiento extendida es increíble. Mejor cito: "no es mierda, es él!". Preestreno en YouTube y esperamos que en la filmoteca pronto.

Colour, 87 minutes, 2001(Sale in Germany with IWF)

Director and Anthropologist: Jean Lydall Camera: Kaira Strecker

Jean Lydall has been making films with the Hamar community of southern Ethiopia since the 1970s. In 2001 she returned with her daughter to follow the continuing life story of Duka. Candid interviews reveal the complex family dynamics when Duka's husband, Sago, takes a second wife, Boro. The film provides an intimate and personel family portrait that captures Duka's ambivalence at sharing her home and husband. The high points of the film include the birth of the new wife's child and heated dispute between the mother-in-law and her son, which leads to the building of a new house.
