Turkana Conversations

Also about individuals from the Turkana in north-western Kenya (see ‘Lorang’s Way’ and ‘A Wife Among Wives’), this film chronicles a series of events which surround the marriage of Lorang’s daughter Akai to Kongu, his agemate. A large section of the film is concerned with a dispute which arises over the number and size of large and small animals — goats and camels — to be given as bridewealth to Lorang and his kin.
