Banks of the Nile

Anon | 1911 | ★★★★½
Employing G.A. Smith’s patented Kinemacolour system to dazzling effect, this engrossing Italian documentary fascinatingly captures the varied human life that could be found living and working along the banks of the River Nile in Egypt in 1911. Rich and poor, Arab, European, and sub-Saharan African alike, all are brought back from the grave with wonderfully vibrant and decidedly colourful presentation.
