Subject: Yanomamö Films Preservation Campaign

[list_name ]
Dear Visual Anthropologists

I am forwarding a request frim Alice Apley of DER.

DER wants to preserve the Timothy Aschs Yanomamo films which are
ethnographic film classics.

They started a crowdfunding project which we end in 3 days:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/derfilms/yanomamo-films-preservation

They have nearly reached their goal. Perhaps some of you are interested in
supporting the project.

I think it is a wonderful opportunity to preserve these films and get hold
of them in a good quality.

Best wishes

Beate Engelbrecht

Co-ordinator of the

Visual Anthropology Network of the

European Association of Social Anthropologists

Happy Giving Tuesday!

We are beyond thankful for your generous pledges to our

Thanksgiving break! Together, you've helped us raise $21,516 of our $25,000
goal!

We have just FIVE days left to reach our goal, or we won't get any of this
crucial funding. In the spirit of giving and learning, I'm pleased to share
this special memory from DER board member and former high school teacher,
Mary Anne Saul:

"Pictured in the photo is Antonio Yanomami and me at a Cultural Survival
conference for high school students at Harvard's Graduate School of
Education in 2002. To prepare my students, I used the DER films as well as
readings to inform our discussions about Yanomami history, culture and
challenges from loggers, gold miners, and others who covet their section of
the Amazon rainforest. Antonio was one of several Yanomami teachers who came
to work with high school students and activists to spread the word about
their present-day struggles. After the conference my students, along with
many others, raised money to send a few computers to the education center in
Brazil where Antonio taught."

Preserving the Yanomam films will enable teachers like Mary Anne and
Antonio to continue to expose students to the evolving history and culture
of the Yanomami and similar indigenous groups in Latin America. This
#GivingTuesday, I hope you will make a tax-deductible donation to this
important preservation project.

Make your pledge and share the preservation campaign today:

About the Yanomam Films Preservation Campaign: DER has been awarded a
matching grant from the

ef9c039b3b&e=2a582d42ea> National Film Preservation Foundation to restore
and preserve nine 16mm films from the Yanomam Series (1968-1976), Tim Asch
and Napoleon Chagnon's innovative body of work documenting the indigenous
Yanomami community in the Amazon River Basin. Now, we need to raise $25,000
to meet the grant's match requirements! We're working closely with the
Smithsonian's National Anthropological Film Archives to ensure these films
are preserved at the highest standards and safeguarded for years to come.

The enduring value of these films resides in their breadth of coverage and
the multiplicity of perspectives they provide into the life of a people so
outwardly different from ourselves. They continue to invite our attention as
historical representations of a culture that has since experienced
significant transformations.
