Melissa Llewlyn-Davies, Memories and dreams, 1993, 92 min.

The filmmaker returns to the Maasai village in Kenya that has been the subject of most of her life's work. Intercut with scenes from her earlier works, this film explores the changes the Maasai have been forced to make. Her focus is on the women of the pastoral village who speak about their inferior status through recourse to myth and simple practicality.
