Camera, Ulrich Schweizer.
Filmed in the village of Bida, in Nigeria.
This film begins at the shop of a Nigerian glassmaker, Masaga & le Nupe Industries in Bida. A handwritten sign on the hut says "Beads, bangles and other ornaments shown and sold here, Masaga & le Nupe Industries, Bida". The viewer is then shown how these glass items are produced by visiting the glassmakers hut. In a primitive manner, several glassmakers are seated on the ground around an open circular pot furnace. Glass beads, bangles, and snakes are made by melting already made glass (bottles, etc.). These processes are repetitively shown. At the end, strings of beads and bangles are being sold in an open market. There is no narration, mostly background music.
