This one later made up the most part of another film.

This 47-minute documentary, financed by HRH's government, won an Oscar in the special category, and most of it was later edited into a 1953 two-segment documentary called "Savage World" by the same crew of film-makers listed on this film. The story here is about an African tribe that is working to build a maternity hospital, with the aid of government officials, and against the opposition of some tribal members. I'm not certain how this qualifies as a short, since its running time was 47-minutes in both the UK and the U.S., and the site specs for a film to be in the Shorts genre is 45-minutes or less.

As of this date, "Savage World (1954)" is not listed on site, but coming soon to a site near you.
