African Art in Motion: The Masks of the Nuna People of Burkina Faso
 

Three videos of masks in performance in 2001-05 in Burkina Faso, West Africa. Two videos in the villages of Savara and Tisse, and one of the annual mask festival at Pouni. Masks include butterfly, crocodile, hyena, bush pig, antelope, policeman, and more. Each mask's performance recreates the encounters between the ancestors of the village and the supernatural spirits that protect the community.
