Borle, Marcel (1895-1983)


Marcel Borle was an amateur film-maker who shot the footage for Voyage en Angola (1929) during the course of a Swiss scientific mission to Angola in 1928-29. Though most of the footage concerns the expedition itself, there are some sequences in the latter part of the film in which the mission members meet some local indigenous people, and also a brief sequence of masked dancing.
