The Makishi Film made in Zambia in 1968 is one of the only films showing the genuine Makishi dancing as seen in Zambia, Angola and Zimbabwe.

It was made on a shoestring although a complete village was built to show off the dances as they should be seen.

Although an information film it was shown throughout the world and given the Diploma di Menzione Speciale at the Venice Film Festival that year.


I would like to dedicate this site to three of the staff and crew on this film who are no longer with us - my father Leonard Boucher who scripted and directed the dancing, Colin Page who was the cameraman and Louis Nell who was in charge of the film unit during that time.
