Has there ever been a film developed by a completely isolated society/community?
Like some African village in buttfuck nowhere, and a team of hipsters just gave them film equipment and said "make shit"?
>Uganda has a thriving film community apparently
Places like Senegal too, but I think that's because since a lot of euros came and colonized and stuff they got inspired, but that has influence
I mean they have almost no exposure to any film so it's from nothing
>It never literally happens because the savages just eat the hipsters alive.
There HAS to be a group that isn't too ooga booga!
>>Not knowing about Ramon Film Productions from Uganda
The guy who made this was so poor he only knew what films were like because he listened to them while sitting outside cinemas. In short he was only guessing what films were like visually and was guessing at how they were made. African film is pretty interesting, would recommend reading up on it. Some of the stuff has to be seen to be believed.
Also, the french colonized areas in Africa were bought a load of cameras, sound equipment etc by France after the French New Wave became a worldwide film movement. They wanted to help instill culture there like we do in the west. The results were pretty varied and most of the filmmakers used the opportunity to rain scorn down upon their French ran governments.
>finally found someone interested in one of the few interesting things studied during film studies
>they disappear after someone tells them about those shitty Ugandan action movies
>everyone in uni just wanted to talk about fucking gender roles
When will I find someone who wants to discuss anthropologically relevant films? Life is suffering.
