Summary:
Edited film, documenting the Ju/'hoansi (!Kung Bushmen) in the Nyae-Nyae region of the Kalahari Desert in Namibia, was shot during the Peabody Museum Expeditions led by Laurence Marshall and supported by the Smithsonian Institution. This film, shot by John Marshall over numerous expeditions in the fifties, is an in-depth look at the struggle for survival in a hot and arid climate and focuses on four men who undertake a hunt to obtain meat for their family group. The chronicle of their 13-day trek becomes part of their folklore, illustrating the ancient roots and continual renewal of African tribal cultures.

Summary:
Television broadcast created by Hal Linker with his wife, Halla, and son, David, begins with visits to two different monuments demarking the equator before traveling through the countryside (small farm with ox pulled plow, village street scenes, church and boy playing the flute) to Quito. On the way the Linkers stop at Lake San Pablo (herron, little girl playing in the lake, women washing clothes, and man cleaning raffia fibers), travel through the mountains (children and men preparing for village festival bonfire and men and women carrying fuel for bonfire) and stop at the town known for figurines made of bread. There the Linkers visit Fabrica de Figuras de Pan where Margarita Reza works with others making llama and turtle bread figures (shaping and coloring dough, baking in oven, and display of various brightly colored figures sold in the shop including All Saints Day witches). Linkers travel on to Otavalo where they note the braids worn by men, the various wares (ceramic bowls and pans, food, hats, and rope made of cactus) sold in the market, selling wool, women spinning wool, stacks of wool blankets, ponchos, glass beads, embroidery, cocks bred for cockfighting, and carving wooden figures (religious, Indian, beggars, devil dancer and Don Quixote). In Quito the Linkers film the old section of town, new buildings, a contemporary fountain with statues of Native Americans that were given by different countries of the Americas, and university students performing the devil dance.

Summary:
Footage shot by Jerry Payne for the first detailed study of arthropod succesion in animal decomposition and the first to use a pig as the model. Because a pig closely approximates the human body, the data generated could be used in modern forensic science to approximate the time of human deaths. The time lapse footage was taken over 4 days and demonstrates the sequence of tissue destruction and the role of insects in the ultimate dismemberment of the carcass and soil movement. Pink and purple beads were added to show the intense activities of the insects in moving the carcass and soil.

Summary:
Footage shot by Andreas E. Laszlo, M.D., of the Cree Indians and, in particular, the process of making snowshoes, during travels with his wife, Lucile, and friend Narcisse Nosky, a Cree Indian, in Cree trapping grounds near an unnamed tributary of the Jennings, close to Teslin Lake. Footage opens with a map of western Canada and snow covered mountains, a map of British Columbia with, presumably, a group of Cree and mongrel dogs carrying packs walking across snow and a topographical map followed by what appears to be an early fall Cree encampment in a wooded area. Dogs are harnessed to a sled and a small group of men and women leaves the camp, some on horses. There appears to be some difficulty getting the dogs harnessed and moving in the right direction. They travel through wooded areas and down a frozen waterway, and along a mountain top. An animal is killed, possibly a juvenile or female elk. The group sets up an encampment near a partially frozen river. Two Cree men look over a pair of broken snow shoes which begins the process demonstration of making a new pair of snow shoes. Two men on horse cross the swiftly flowing river followed by dogs struggling against the current. A Birch tree about eight inches in diameter is cut down, trimmed, and carried back across the river to camp. Smaller trees of about 2-3 inches in diameter are trimmed and stripped of bark. The following footage shows in some detail the making of a snow shoe including stages of creating and preparing the shoe's frame and turning up toe which is typical of a Cree snow shoe; drilling and burning holes for the lacing; preparing animal hide for lacing and cutting strips of hide for the lattice and wrapping the frame; and lacing with the strips of hide. In addition, repairing a broken snow shoe is shown. A man works with the frame and the women primarily process the hide and lace the lattice work. Footage ends before the snow shoe is finished.
