Film reels
Date:
1953-1954
Scope and Contents:
This film footage was assembled from two reels. The first reel is from Walter Knips and his wife's 1954 trip to Hunza and Srinagar, and the second reel is from their 1953 trip to Gilgit and Nanga Parbat.

Reel 1: Hunza #3 and Srinagar. This reel begins with scenes from Walter and Eva Knips' first visit to Hunza, in 1954. Several men dance to pipe and drum in front of an audience of other local men; a group of men stand around with horses being saddled; snow-capped mountain range filmed from an elevation—plane? But also from a ground level as evidenced by a view of some tree tops; two western women, including Eva in a tuuk hat, walk along a path, ahead of a group of men, including two or three men in western dress—the Mir (Muhammad Jamal Khan, the last Ismaili ruler of Hunza) in shirt, tie, jacket and hat appears in the foreground; women and children watch and wave from the side of the path; polo players stand ready with their mallets; polo match; a man dancing at the polo match; many men dancing in a circle with flags; the Mir, seated in a viewing area behind a protective screen of chicken wire, reaches toward the outstretched hands of his subjects who stop by to pay homage; men dancing; the Mir in a garden setting, outfitted in his elaborate official vestments of gold-thread embroidered coat and a flat cap decorated by a snow white plume of hair from a Himalayan mountain goat—perhaps analogous to the gamsbart —the German hat pin made of goat's beard hair; the Rani, the Mir's wife, poses in the garden setting, her hair covered by a diaphanous shawl and her neck wrapped in a string of pearls. Footage continues with scenes from Walter and Eva's trip to Srinagar (Note: the voyage to Srinagar actually took place before the trip to Hunza): the journey by small wooden boat down a river—most likely a shikara or type of open-air or partially covered gondola with a "driver" paddling or poling at the rear; views of the shoreline and other boats; people crossing over the river on a bridge; people looking out of houses that at times overhang the shoreline; children along the shoreline; men doing laundry in the river; passing under a stone bridge with people crossing and watching the boat pass; men poling the boat; a woman cleaning the floor of the boat; men sitting around a small steaming pot on the boat perhaps preparing a small snack or tea; Walter in a water taxi films the approach to the rented houseboat named "Doreen" as Eva looks down from the houseboat's upper deck; Eva in a dark blouse sits in the houseboat kitchen and smiles as she wields a large knife to trim and cut leeks; merchants display polished semi-precious agates and a small case of silver rings; the view of the lake—perhaps Lake Nigeen and surrounding coastline and mountain ranges; a small boat or water taxi comes into view; Srinagar footage ends with interior shots of the houseboat showing western furnishings and a floor covered in oriental rugs; another water taxi approaches.

Reel 2: Gilgit and Nanga Parbat. Footage begins with a very brief glimpse of Eva Knips, in a white lace blouse, speaking to a heavily bearded man, Hermann Buhl, the prominent Austrian mountaineer and member of the 1953 German-Austrian Nanga Parbat Climbing Expedition. Eva and Walter Knips traveled to Gilgit from Karachi in order to attend a reception honoring the return of the European mountaineers from their successful summit of Nanga Parbat (elev. 26,660 feet) on July 3, 1953; in his role as Trade Commissioner with the German Embassy in Karachi, Walter had served as the expedition's local contact and as German/English/Urdu translator as he helped to organize climbing permits, Sherpas, etc.; the expedition members rewarded his assistance by inviting him to join them on the first leg of their climb to the mountain's first base camp (elev. 13,000 feet). Footage of the reception continues with scenes from the grounds of the Political Agent's residence: a stationary, uniformed marching band with drummers and their mascot? goat; Eva in white blouse stands in the background with other westerners—some of them are the mountaineers—as well as local officials, including the Political Agent; guests serve themselves from a buffet; a group of local men; the Political Agent congratulates the mountaineers and bids each man to kneel in order to receive a touch on the shoulder and have the traditional soft-rounded rolled-up hat (pakol) placed on his head; the return journey by plane from Gilgit, likely to the simple airstrip of Rawalpindi, offers views of the snow covered mountain ranges; a few quick scenes of the plane's interior show Eva and the mountaineers; there is some footage of the descent to a lower elevation to show a valley's landscape; more extensive footage (approx. 2 minutes) of Nanga Parbat continues to the end of the reel.

Film reels
Date:
1953-1960
Scope and Contents:
This film footage was assembled from two reels. The first reel is a mix of black-and-white and color. The black-and-white film is from the Walter and Eva Knips family's time in Pakistan, and the color footage is from their time in Houston. The second reel is entirely in black-and-white and is from the family's time in Pakistan.

Reel 1: The reel begins with black and white footage of Franziska Knips, as a toddler of two-and-a-half, wading in a shallow pool as her seated father, Walter, looks on. These first few scenes of Franziska with her parents, Walter and Eva, in swimsuits, take place in early 1953, most likely at the Beach Luxury Hotel in Karachi where the family was required to live for several months, after their arrival from Germany and before the construction of their permanent home was completed. Footage moves on to show Franziska looking at a book and standing at a table where 4 candles are lit for her 4th birthday; Franziska discovers a tricycle stashed beneath the table, pulls it out and tries to get on with Eva's help; an audience of western children that have been invited for the birthday party watch as a man and boy urge their dancing monkeys to perform; Franziska with her tricycle poses for the camera and propels it around the home's open terrace with her feet on the ground; Franziska plays with a ball and laughs at the camera. A scene change shows a beach house setting where Eva, in a swimsuit and sunglasses, sits on the stoop and holds a book; Franziska shows off her sand toys; Eva and Lilo, a distant cousin of Eva's who has come from Germany to act as a nanny, eat lunch with Franziska. The next scene change shows Eva holding her newborn, a boy named Georg, born on December 8, 1953, at a Karachi hospital; Eva is watched over by women and nurses; Eva and the nanny Lilo leave the hospital with the infant; upon arriving at home, Franziska runs out ahead of Eva, Lilo, and baby Georg; all four sit at a table in the dining room; Abdul, the head manservant in a white turban, and two of the waitstaff exit the kitchen and bring food to the table; Eva, dressed in white blouse and shorts, and Franziska stand together on their terrace. Film footage switches to color and moves to Houston. Preteen children (Franziska Knips in a white striped bathing suit with frilly bottom) in swimsuits line up and walk toward the camera to play in the pool at the Knips family's home in Bellaire, Houston; boys and girls show off diving skills. Footage changes to scenes of a parade with floats, including one of a Mississippi River boat, a marching band, people in costumes, people on roller skates, and people carrying large puppets—Abe Lincoln, Thanksgiving turkey—most likely all part of an annual Texas Rodeo parade. Footage returns to family scenes: Georg eating while Karl plays with a ball; another group of preteens in swimsuits (Franziska in a black suit). Scene changes to an unknown harbor: ferrymen operating a train car ferry—railway tracks are visible; the ending of the tracks on a boat; the ferry cruises past the breakwater and enters the open harbor; views of the harbor; western women on the boat viewing the end of the tracks; and Eva, in a blue and white dress and white necklace, watches another ferry pass. Scenes of Georg and Karl sitting by the pool at their Bellaire home; Georg pulls frogs out of the pool; Georg rides his bicycle; Karl, dressed in a coat, is determined to ride the same bicycle and decides to position it next to the sandbox for an easier mount; rides off with ease; final scene of another swimming party that includes Georg and Karl.

Reel 2. A group of adults and children, wearing crowns and holding lantern sticks, parading ahead of St. Nicholas, who appears in a bishop's mitre and cape, and carries a sack of toys during a Christmas party organized by the German embassy for the German colony; a large assembly of dinner guests for Christmas in the courtyard on the embassy grounds; black and white scenes of a boat excursion include Eva in head scarf, Franziska and nanny Lilo; Franziska hugs Eva; a final black and white scene shows Franziska riding her tricycle on the terrace of her home in Karachi, Pakistan.

This film footage was assembled from 3 reels. The first two of these reels were from the Knips family trip to Hunza in the autumn of 1955.

Locals stand along the edge of the rocky road, westerners mount yaks—Eva in a beige windbreaker and visor cap, Franziska right behind, then the Rani in a dark shawl and white gloves which she wears to shield her hands from sun exposure to prevent discoloration and wrinkling, locals walk along side, villagers watch and salute the procession; Eva passes by astride her yak saddled with a red saddle blanket; food is laid out/handed out; children pose for the camera; Eva positions herself to take photos from a balcony as the Mir, dressed in riding clothes and a brown topi hat, rides into the polo arena on a white horse surrounded by the advancing crowd led by drummers and pipers; the Mir dismounts and greets locals who stand and hold out their food offerings; locals arrange themselves along the edge of the polo field; Franziska and the princesses are briefly seen on the viewing platform before scampering off with the Mir and his brother in tow; the Mir's oldest son—the crown prince—and two of his younger sisters appear in front of a snow- covered mountain backdrop as Franziska joins in the rear; a scene of three local women beating and turning wool with sticks; mountain scenery; Walter Knips in a black felt hat with the Mir and his brother; a smiling local and others file out of a building with Eva, the Mir, and his brother among them; a local man with a strap of rifle cartridges across his chest stands in front of a mountain scene; a rider and his horse struggle to traverse a deep and rapidly flowing river; polo match scenes show chickens and black sheep running around in the midst of the game; Eva and Franziska, in coat and hat, are seen shaking hands in farewell with the Mir and his brother before mounting a yak; as a guide looks on, Eva and Walter test what it's like to cross a river on a precarious rope and plank bridge. Footage continues with the journey home. A jeep packed full of people, including Eva and Franziska and the terrier (which did not belong to the Knips family); views from the jeep; an airplane taking off at Gilgit airstrip; a view of mountains from the airplane; then a view from the train as it passes many newly constructed homes on the outskirts of Karachi before pulling into the station; the very end of the reel offers a very brief glimpse of a man standing on the platform, dressed in white clothes and turban—this is Abdul, the Knips family's head manservant awaiting their arrival.

Reel 3. 1956: Franziska Knips, age 6, and her brothers, Georg, age 3, and Karl, age 1, play with each other on the terrace of their home in Karachi; Georg plays with a wooden scooter; Eva with camera and the new German nanny, Barbara, appear on a desert-like terrain outside of the home with the three children; as Eva films, the Knips' father Walter and the nanny play-act a chase scene with the children; (interspersed is footage of a local construction crew, passing freshly mixed mortar/cement chain-gang style up a primitive scaffolding); family scenes on the home terrace in Karachi continue with Franziska, Georg, nanny Barbara, Eva in a black and white strapless sun dress carrying Karl to his play pen; scenes of the terrace show a seating area and oleander planters; manservant Abdul and his helpers salute for the camera; Eva drives a car (a 1956 Fiat Multipla) into the carport; nanny Barbara emerges along with the three children; Walter appears and waves his hat as he strolls the courtyard and stops to smell the oleander blossoms with nanny Barbara, Franziska, the two boys, and the family's white dog, a Spitz; Karl practices rocking back and forth on his knees on the grass; Walter drives up in a blue and white Chevrolet; Franziska with the family's white dog; nanny Barbara with Georg, Eva with Franziska seated on the grass; Georg plays with a puppet on a stick. Footage moves to scenes of locals assembled, playing cymbals, large gongs, and drums; a caravan of local men surrounds an elevated and ceremonially decorated platform or litter?; dramatic and incredibly rapid sword wielding skills are displayed by young boys; stick and sword fighting by older men as drumming continues; a parade of local women and children passes; scenes of bare-chested older men and young boys, swaying back and forth as they swing their arms to rhythmically beat their chests (This could be part of Matam, a devotional ceremony of mourning and lamentation commemorating the martyrs of the Battle of Karbala in 680. Here the self-flagellation is performed with hands but there are other cases where knives, swords, or blades are used to self-inflict chest lacerations); a young girl dressed in formal costume and elaborately pleated head wear dances; a man riding his camel along the beach near Karachi.
