François Fournier is a troubled ten-year-old who has been in foster care since he was four. But his is a "temporary placement," meaning that his parents can come back for him any time. They never do. The story begins with François being shuffled from one foster home to another, as his insecurity leads him to engage in increasingly destructive behavior. He is placed with an older couple named Thierry, the newest addition to a ménage that includes Mrs. Thierry's mother, a very young girl, and a high-school age boy. They aren't afraid to share their lives with this new houseguest, and the impressionable boy seems to be settling down. For François, things just are what they are--and he's usually "temporary." A fascinating portrait of childhood, which is also an indictment of a failing social system
Les maîtres fous by Jean Rouch( Visual )

24 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in English and French and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmed in Accra, Ghana, in 1954, the film depicts the annual ceremony of the Hauku cult, a social and religious movement which was widespread in French colonial Africa from the 1920's to the 1950's. Participants in the ceremony mimic the elaborate military ceremonies of their colonial occupiers, but in more of a trance than true recreation
Jaguar by Jean Rouch( Visual )

15 editions published between 1965 and 2017 in French and English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three young men from the Savannah of Niger leave their homeland to seek wealth and adventure on the coast and in the cities of Ghana. This film is the story of their travels, their encounters along the way, their experiences in Accra and Kumasi, and, after three months, their return to their families and friends at home. The film is part documentary, part fiction, and part reflective commentary. There was no portable sound synchronized equipment in the early 1950s when Jaguar was shot. Instead, Rouch had the main characters (his friends and "accomplices") improvise a narrative while they viewed the film, which was itself improvized along the way. The resulting soundtrack consists of remembered dialogue, of joking and exclamations, of questions and explanations about the action on the screen. Short-term, rural migration to the cities is common to much of contemporary Africa. Here we meet Lam the herdsman, Illo the fisherman and Damoure, their unsettled but literate friend. The three trek for more than a month south through Dahomey to Ghana, crossing the land of the Somba people (whose nudity shocks them), eating coconuts "more delicious than cheese," and delighting in the ocean with its waves and starfish. Eventually they part ways. Damoure and Illo go to Accra and Lam to Kumasi, where they find jobs as dockworker, foreman for a lumberman, and cattleherder for a city butcher

Moi, un noir : (Treichville) by Jean Rouch( Visual )

9 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in French and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moi, un noir marked Jean Rouch's break with traditional ethnography and his embrace of the collaborative and improvisatory strategies he called 'shared ethnography' and 'ethnofiction.' The film depicts an ordinary week in the lives of men and women from Niger who have migrated to Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, for work. After a short introduction by Rouch, 'Edward G. Robinson'--Omarou Ganda, who like the film's other subject-collaborators plays himself under the name of a Western movie star--takes over the film's narration, recreating dialogue and providing freewheeling commentary on his experiences. Robinson describes the bitter reality of life in Treichville, a poor inner suburb populated largely by migrants, and his work as a day laborer (bozori) in the ports ... Rouch's stylistic innovations here exerted a profound influence on the French New Wave, and his collaborative process helped bolster the national cinemas of West Africa"--Container
La chasse au lion l'arc by Jean Rouch( Visual )

13 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in English and French and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little by little = petit à petit by Jean Rouch( Visual )

11 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in French and English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A classic from 1970 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 a Petit is an exercise in what Rouch called ethno-fiction, an idiosyncratic blend of fiction and observational documentary
Mammy water by Jean Rouch( Visual )

9 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in French and English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A classic short documentary by Jean Rouch, one of the pivotal figures in the French New Wave and in the history of ethnographic cinema. A film made on the coast of Ghana about the sea, the Surf Boys and the festivals held for the sea gods. This short documentary about the sea along the coast of Ghana has been superbly re-mastered and is visually spectacular. The sea belongs to the water spirits? and also to the Surf Boys, fishermen who fight their way through the huge surf to spend one or two days casting nets at sea. In the shadow of the remains of old Portuguese forts along the coast-line, is the town of Shama, a fishing community on the mouth of the Pra River. Here an elaborate ceremony is held to appease the gods of the sea after the death of one of the community?s priestesses. The King of Shama is carried in procession accompanied by much music, dancing and inebriation. After a traditional regatta and animal sacrifice, the sea gods are appeased, and the fishing canoes once again brave the surf, while children play surfing games in safety on the beach. Very different in style from the films for which Rouch became most famous, this beautifully filmed documentary takes a classic form, narrated in detail and tightly structured to convey the wealth of tradition that surrounds the sea and the people who depend upon it for their sustenance
Terre sans pain = Land without bread by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in French and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Luis Buñuel's only documentary, Land without bread (Las Hurdes) is a subversive exploration of an isolated region of Spain too barren to sustain life and the backward struggle of its inhabitants to survive. Shot as a travelogue, what surfaces is an unflinching attack on any establishment that would turn a blind eye to such a pocket of misery. Mixing cold scientific examination with absurdity and tragedy, Land without bread answers the mystifying question of whether one can make a Surrealist documentary, and with Buñuel the answer is yes"--Container
