A digital film still of actors Daniel Kaluuya, Chadwick Boseman, Angela Bassett, Isaach de Bankolé, and Connie Chiume and crew filming a tribal council scene of the movie Black Panther. The actors are seated in a semi-circle, with the camera and film crew in the middle.
Chadwick Boseman as the character T'Challa is in the center, seated in a throne chair, surrounded by members of the tribal council. He is wearing a long sleeve black tunic with grey designs, black pants, and a black beaded bracelet on his proper left wrist. The curved throne chair is grey and black with Wakandan symbols across the front curve of the seat. Boseman’s arms are on the armrests. Daniel Kaluuya as the character W'Kabi is on Boseman’s proper right side, wearing a grey shirt with a patterned cloth draped around his shoulders.
Angela Bassett, as the character Ramonda, is seated to Boseman’s proper left side. She is wearing a black dress with a lacy bustle on the back along with a traditional black Zulu basket hat, a necklace, a ring, and a beaded bracelet on her proper left wrist. Her hands are folded on her lap. Isaach de Bankolé, as the River Tribe Elder, is seated on her proper left side in a decorative silver chair. He is wearing a green and black patterned jacket and pants. He is wearing a black beaded bracelet on his proper left wrist and is holding a hat in his hand. The hat matches the jacket and pants. The proper left side of his face is in profile. He wears a traditional Mursi lip plate and a green ear gauge with black geometric design.
Connie Chiume, as the Mining Tribe Elder, is seated on his proper left side. She is sitting in a decorative silver chair and her back is facing the camera. She wears a Himba headdress, called an erembe, consisting of red ochre colored locks of hair ending in dark puffs at the bottom. Atop the erembe she wears a beaded leather crown. She is wearing a yellow dress with a black, blue, and orange pattern.
In the center of the council semi-circle is a camera person with a film camera pointed at Boseman while another crew member crouches next to the camera dolly. Two crew members hold boom equipment above Chadwick Boseman. A third boom stick can be seen extending from the left side.
