  • Description

    M/S of passengers coming down the steps of an Air France plane; all carrying souvenirs of their trip. One woman carries a large painted bowl, a man carries a fez hat, another woman carries a berber hat; C/U of the hat as we pan down steps with her.

    C/Us of a berber woman in Marrakech, wearing traditional costume of berber hat, white head covering and robes. M/S of her sitting in a market place surrounded by straw baskets, sacks and boxes. L/S of the market place; large crowds of people milling about and buildings beyond.

    M/S of camel market showing people walking around and inspecting horses; M/S and C/U of groups of men talking and bargaining with camels and horses in the background. M/Ss of crowds of people milling round in the camel market and of two water sellers dressed in brightly-coloured robes of orange and red, straw hats with matching coloured tassels dangling from the brims and numerous water bowls hanging across their chests. M/S of a man leading a camel away from the crowd.

    Interesting M/S of a street in the market place with people walking about; clay pots are being sold on the stalls in the background; a young Moroccan lad wearing westernised clothes walks towards camera holding a handkerchief up to his face like a yashmak.

    M/Ss in a crowded corn market; a man shakes some corn through a sieve; two men talking by some huge open sacks of corn; another man sifting corn for a customer; more men talking while a woman handles the corn. Nice M/S of a donkey eating from a large basket of corn.

    M/S in wool dyers section of the market; red and orange dyed wool is hanging from the roof high above the street to dry in the sun. M/S of a pottery stall as the owner places a pot on display; lots of glazed pots and plates around the doorway, most are brightly painted; C/Us of urns and plates. L/S of the market place; people milling about; there are quite a few cars parked on the edges.
    Note: quite a lot of neg sparkle; may be cleaned and retransferred.
