Recently digitally remastered in Turkana with English subtitles, this beautiful and influential third film in renowned filmmakers David and Judith MacDougall’s celebrated Turkana Conversations Trilogy was made over 14 months with seminomadic camel herders in 1970s Kenya. Through reflexive, thoughtful, and witty exchanges as they go about their daily lives, women make clear why they might want their husband to take an additional wife, turning questions about polygyny back on the filmmakers, all against the backdrop of a pending wedding. 

Co-presented by the New York University Center for Media, Culture and History
