Marquis de Wavrin

The Belgian ethnographer and documentary filmmaker Robert de Wavrin is totally lost in history, but Grace Winter’s documentary and research has brought his work back into focus.

To avoid prison, Marquis de Wavrin left Belgium and travelled to South America, where between 1913 and 1936 he encountered various indigenous peoples who had never before been filmed. He returned home with totally unbiased footage.

Watching it today, we can only conclude that Wavrin’s material is as valuable as it is spectacular.
