April 23 7:00 PM Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art 541-346-3027 Website
Filmed by James Blue and legendary ethnographic filmmaker David MacDougall in the Marsabit District of northern Kenya, Kenya Boran explores problems posed for rural Boran herdsman and their families by the encroachment of urban development on their once-isolated grazing lands. According to O’Grady, MacDougall and Blue’s “new style of observational cinema involved single shots of unusually long duration and invited the subjects being shot to participate in the making.”
