Deposited in HSFA in 2006 by Institut für den Wissenschaftlichen Film (IWF) Wissen und Medien gGmbH via the Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) Audio-visual Services, which possessed the film prints as the American Distributor for the IWF Encyclopaedia Cinematographica. Films were made by various German anthropologists for inclusion in the Institut für den Wissenschaftlichen Film (IWF) Encyclopaedia Cinematographica. Film prints of the Encyclopaedia Cinematographica were distributed in North America by Penn State Audio-Visual Services under an agreement with IWF. When Penn State Audio-Visual Services effectively closed in 2005, the film prints were offered to the Human Studies Film Archives. The HSFA agreed to accept all the ethnographic film titles in the Encyclopaedia Cinematographica. Since Penn State had no rights to the prints, HSFA negotiated an agreement with IWF Wissen und Medien gGmbH.
16 mm film prints.
Edited film: men and young boys of the village Tetua build a ring and play this game against one another with a cubical "ball" made of plaited palm leaves. The ball is kicked into the air. One person stands in the middle and can therefore pass the ball along to others in an arbitrary manner, all done by kicking. There is no point system and no winner.
