Documentary Screening – Dr. Frank Gunderson

The WORLD PREMIERE screening of Dr. Frank Gunderson’s original documentary, Ng’oma – The Work of Our Clan, will take place during the SfM meeting tomorrow. The film focuses on Phillipo Barabara, a master drum-maker in the Sukuma region of  western Tanzania, and documents his process of making a bunuunguli ng’oma, or “procupine hunter drum.” It has been accepted for showings at two international festivals – MUSCAN Film Series in Saskatchawan Ontario and ETHNOGRAPH Film Festival in Paris.

Please join us in celebrating the hard work and talents of one of our very own faculty members, Dr. Frank Gunderson!
