Rouch's gang by Steef Meyknecht( Visual )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1991, Jean Rouch started work on his new feature film Madame l'Eau, much of which was shot in Holland. The documentary Rouch's Gang follows the film crew and provides a glimpse behind the scenes as Jean Rouch and his four friends from Niger make their film. By providing an outsider's view of Madame l'Eau, the documentary provides insight into how Rouch approaches his films
Jaguar by Jean Rouch( Visual )

10 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in French and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Jean Rouch's classic ethnofictions, the film follows three young Songhay men from Niger-- Lam Ibrahim, Illo Goudel'ize, and the legendary performer Damouré Zika-- on a journey to the Gold Coast (modern day Ghana). Drawing from his own fieldwork on intra-African migration, the results of which he published in the 1956 book Migrations au Ghana, Rouch collaborated with his three subjects on an improvisational narrative. The four filmed the trip in mid-1950s, and reunited a few years later to record the sound, the participants remembering dialogue and making up commentary. The result is a playful film that finds three African men performing an ethnography of their own culture
Little by little = petit à petit by Jean Rouch( Visual )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in French and Undetermined and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A classic ethnofiction by Jean Rouch, one of the pivotal figures in the French New Wave and in the history of ethnographic cinema. An innovative semi-improvised feature film about young men from Niger exploring life in Paris and learning to appreciate traditional values back home. Like Jaguar, and starring the three main actors from that film, Petit à Petit is an exercise in what Rouch called ethno-fiction, an idiosyncratic blend of fiction and observational documentary

Récit d'une coutume de chasse ancestrale. À la frontière du Niger et du Mali, au pays de "nulle part", au pays du désert et de la brousse, vivent les Gao, chasseurs de lions à l'arc. Selon un rituel très précis, ils fabriquent les flèches, les arcs et le poison boto, ils mettent en place les pièges, ils tuent les fauves, libèrent leurs âmes et se nourrissent de leur chair. Mais bientôt, "personne ne chassera plus jamais le lion à l'arc."

Né dans une famille de pêcheur au bord du fleuve Niger, Damouré Zika a traversé presque tout le XXe siècle.
