16mm presentation - Deep from within the vault at the Museum comes this amazing film of the first trans-African journey by motor truck, a 14 month, 14,000 mile trek. Watch a swarm of locusts devour everything but the camera and see an antelope that jumps forty feet backward or forward when frightened. As the original film ads proclaim: See the real Africa, HEAR the real Africa! Lions roar! Zebras bark! Elephants scream! The Museum’s image archivist, René Payne, and Howie Movshovitz of Starz FilmCenter will discuss the significance of this celluloid gem.

DIRECTOR: Walter Futter
