Summary
  • "An exploration of the spiritual traditions of a fishing village on the Gulf of Guinea. When the catch is bad, villagers must honor Mammy Water, mother sea and source of food, with a colorful ceremony, the Chama, to express their gratitude and respect"--Booklet
  • "In the city of Accra in 1954, emigrants from Niger are plunged into the frantic life of western civilization. To cope with this uprooting, they meet in a town on the outskirts of the city to practice the cult of Hauka ... depicts a possession ritual ... "--Booklet
  • "Two young Nigeriens have left the interior of Niger to find work in the Ivory Coast. They've ended up in Treichville, a crowded district of Abidjan, uprooted into modern civilization ... marks Rouch's break with traditional ethnography and his embrace of the collaborative and improvisatory strategies he called "shared ethnography" and "ethnofiction""--Booklet
  • "Rouch meets with white colonial French high-school students and their black African classmates (all non-actors) in a lycée on the Ivory Coast. He persuades them to improvise a psychodrama for which he provides the topic, which would change and evolve according to their own wishes and reactions"--Booklet
  • "On the border between Mali and Niger, man lives in perfect harmony with the cosmos. Yet one day the peace is suddenly broken when a lion attacks a cow. A complete hunting ritual follows: arrows, bows, traps and incantations ... [a] documentation of the Songhay people, shot over a period of seven years"--Booklet
  • "A journey on foot from Niger to the Gold Coast (Ghana). Douma, a farmer, Lam, a shepherd, Illo, a fisherman, and Damouré, a gentleman, migrate in hope of earning money. Having worked in various professions, they form the "Little by little" venture. Filmed in 1954, Jaguar is the first film that emerged from the research Jean Rouch conducted on the migrations of the Songhay from Niger to the West African coast"--Booklet
  • "Follows Damouré, Lam, and Illo, Rouch's Nigerien collaborators, as they travel to France to perform a reverse ethnography of late-1960s Parisian life. By reversing the sense of the North/South relations, Rouch humorously critiques both the violence of colonial anthropology and the western vision of "progress""--Booklet
  • "An aimless young woman is sent home from school with nothing to do. Drifting through the streets of Paris, she comes across a variety of people"--Booklet
