In History

Kumasi, Ghana, is the capital of the Asante region. This is the seat for one of the most powerful kingdoms of West Africa, surviving British colonisation for centuries. The Kumasi central market is one of the largest in Africa and is run and lead by women. In this documentary, we meet the female traders of this important economy.

The documentary series “Disappearing World” was originally broadcasted between 1970-1975.
As an anthropological landmark of its time, the series tells the story of traditional communities endangered by the modern world’s progressions.
The series stands as a historical document of daily life in remote and threatened societies, such as the Cuiva, Embera and Panare Indians of Colombia, the nomadic Tuareg of the Sahara, the Kurdish Dervishes and the Meo of China.
