• Short Summary

    Item showing the people of an African village.

  • Description

    (Main Pathetone titles.)

    Titles read: "Now let's stroll into Zululand! Once upon a time Zululand was an independent Kingdom, but now it is part of our far flung Empire. Life in this remote country, however, still remains picturesque - and mostly primitive - and here ----- preparations for ----- ." (timecode obscures titles on vhs copy.)

    South Africa.

    Various shots of villagers of an African village; women carry round containers on their heads; a toddler walks about; men of the village confer and are seen doing a traditional dance. Various shots of a young woman leaning against a tree and singing to a man as she plays a traditional one-stringed instrument; intertitle says the woman seems to do all the work in a Zulu courtship.
