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

Friends, fools, family Rouch's collaborators in Niger by Anne-Mette Jørgensen( Visual )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Worldwide, Jean Rouch is known to many as French anthropologist and innovative filmmaker. Much of his work is linked to the birth of cinéma vérité. However, Rouch's 50 year involvement with a particular group of people in Niger shines a more personal light on his work-one of friendship and collaboration. Together with this group, Rouch has made numerous ethnographic films and upon his sudden death in 2004 they had yet another film in the works. A year prior to Rouch's death two Danish filmmakers went to Niger to make a film with his friends. Their film was going to be a survey of the collaborative methods of Rouch and his friends. It soon became obvious that the story about this unique collaboration is also one about fate. race and cross-cultural relations, as well as friendship and commitment. The film became an exploration of a relationship that changed their lives

Cocorico ! Monsieur Poulet( )

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dans une 2 CV bringuebalante, Lam, surnommé M. Poulet, s'en va en brousse chercher les poulets qu'il vendra à Niamey. Assisté de Tallou et Damouré, il espère faire des affaires juteuses. Mais les imprévus s'accumulent, les poulets sont introuvables, le fleuve Niger difficile à traverser. Et une diablesse ne cesse de jeter des sorts. "Ce film a peut-être été le plus drôle à faire. Lam avait proposé un documentaire sur le commerce du poulet, nous décidons d'en faire un film de fiction réalisé par Dalarou, nouveau réalisateur multinational et tricéphale : Damouré Zika, Lam Ibrahima Dia, Jean Rouch. Nous avons été dépassés dans l'improvisation par les incidents : la voiture de Lam n'avait ni freins, ni phares, ni papiers. Ses pannes continuelles modifiaient sans cesse le scénario prévu. Alors l'invention était continuelle et nous n'avions aucune autre raison de nous arrêter que le manque de pellicule ou le fou rire qui faisait trembler dangereusement micros et caméras." Jean Rouch (EM)
