"The way to be a citizen of the world is to be at home in a lot of places." — Margaret Mead

Jean Rouch filmed this loving and humorous portrait of anthropologist and filmmaker Margaret Mead in September 1977 while he was a guest of the first Margaret Mead Film Festival. As both a friend and colleague, Rouch reveals a glimpse of the legendary Mead in her later years. (Fellow filmmaker John Marshall was the sound recordist.)
