„Together as one“ shows the social use of kola nut in Nso´ society. Nso´ is an ethnic group in the North West region of Cameroon. The Nso´ population counts Christians, Muslims and followers of traditional religious beliefs.
This film shows what a thing, a nut or a natural resource can mean to people in Nso´ society. Kola nut is an item around which the feeling, experience, sense, and lived „reality“ of belonging, togetherness, being together, unity, oneness, friendship and peace is being expressed. The kola nut thus play an important role in bringing very diverse people together, irrespective of their religion, village, quater, or thoughts. In this sense, kola nut brings about a feeling of togetherness, felowship and belonging to a group.

Lamtur Tanlaka Kilian from Cameroon has diploma from History from the University of Ngoundere in Cameroon and Master in Visual Cultural Studies from teh University of Tromsø , Norway.

OUR MISSIONARIES / 9 MIN

Norsko, 2013, 9 min
Martin Gruber

A small village on the coast of Guinea, West Africa. Missionaries settled here in their effort to bring Christianity to this Muslim dominated area. The villagers still speak warmly about their visitors. Nevertheless, the missionaries left after some years – seemingly in a rush, leaving behind many of their belongings. The film “Our Missionaries” tells the story of a misconceived intercultural encounter using the villagers’ memories and images of the missionaries’ material legacy.
 
Martin Gruber studied Visual Anthropology at Goldsmiths College, London and Social Anthropology at Hamburg University. He works as an ethnographic researcher and filmmaker and teaches visual anthropology. Martin recently completed a PhD on participatory ethnographic filmmaking at the Department of Anthropology and Cultural Studies, University of Bremen.
