"The second program in a trilogy focusing on the Hamar, an isolated people of Southwestern Ethiopia. This film shows Duka and her friend, Gardi, as they prepare to marry men they have never met. The film follows the build-up to the marriages, from the all-night vigil with girlfriends, to farewells when the brides are taken away at dawn to the village of their husband's family, the arrival in the villages and the preparation of the prospective brides for the ceremony by the mother-in-law."

The Hamar Trilogy

"From the renowned Under the Sun series of BBC, this trilogy focuses on the Hamar, an isolated people of southwestern Ethiopia whose traditional lifestyle has been barely touched by the war and the famine in the north. The films concentrate on the powerful and outspoken Hamar women, particularly Duka who in the films matures from a young unmarried girl to a wife and mother with two young children. The twenty-year relationship of the anthropologist with the Hamar people allowed for a remarkably spontaneous portrayal."
