Abstract

Božo Škerlj je bil prvi doktor antropologije v Jugoslaviji, manj pa je poznano, da je bil tudi filmski amater. V tridesetih letih preteklega stoletja in še nekaj let po drugi svetovni vojni je snemal z malo ozkotračno filmsko kamero družinsko življenje in utrinke iz službenega okolja. Ohranjenih je 24 filmskih enot v skupnem trajanju 90 minut. V članku so predstavljene okoliščine in značilnosti njegovega filmskega ustvarjanja, vsebine filmov in njihov pomen za preučevanje kulture.
