Has anyone seen Palaver?

Palaver (1926), is a silent movie shot on location in Nigeria by Geoffrey Barkas. It’s an adventure film that deals with love, tin mining (once upon a time, tin was a hotter export than crude oil in Nigeria), and treachery, but I am interested in the scenery/landscape and native Nigerians, more so that the plot. Would be lovely to see Nigeria in a completely different time (not that I haven’t before, I just haven’t seen this one).
