Remembering John Marshall

This film presents a brief portrait of John Kennedy Marshall (1932-2005), weaving together photographs, film clips, archival footage, and interviews with family, friends, and colleagues. Marshall spent fifty years documenting the lives of the Ju/'hoansi people of Namibia. He began his filming in 1951 and in the 1980s became an activist helping the Ju/'hoansi fight for their land and water rights. Marshall produced over 20 films on the Ju'/hoansi, beginning with The Hunters (1957) and culminating with A Kalahari Family (2003).
