• Short Summary

    Africans buy goods at a traditional market.

  • Description

    Titles read: "BLACK MARKET".

    South Africa.

    General view of an African market or 'mai-mai'. A man swishes a knobkerrie about. Another tries on traditional earrings. A man in traditional tribal dress is attended by two Africans in western clothing.

    A man sits among piles of leaves drying in the sun and pounds tobacco in a pot. An African man buys some of the powder and takes it like snuff, sneezing twice afterwards.

    The medicine man is consulted by a man with a bandage around his head. He gives the patient some powder from a small container hung around his neck. Shots of the 'chemist' shop, selling strange-looking ingredients.
