Just when James Cameron announces that we can anticipate not one but two sequels to Avatar, comes the book DINKA: Legendary Cattle Keepers of Sudan about the Dinka peoples of Sudan by brilliant photographers Angela Fisher and Carol Beckwith.
There were numerous recognizable references from the Dinka culture in the first Avatar film, such as the beaded bodices worn by these young women. An almost identical bodice worn by Queen Moat is one example. I doubt seriously that Cameron has made any sizable contribution to the people whose aesthetic has inspired his success.
Maybe I ask too much.
