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

11 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in French and Undetermined and held by 81 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

Moi, un noir by Jean Rouch( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moi, un Noir is set in Treichville, an inner suburb of Abidjan, on the Ivory Coast, where young, unskilled men gather in search of work. In an opening sequence narrated by Rouch himself, he talks about the flood of unemployed youth as one of the sicknesses of the new African towns. He explains that he spent six months following a group of young immigrant men from Niger, 2,000 km away from their home, making this film in collaboration with them: I proposed that we make a film together. They would play their own role with no restrictions on what they wanted to do or say. Narrated largely by one young man nicknamed Edward G. Robinson (played by Oumarou Ganda) as he watches the edited footage, the film expresses his constant "sadness" as he searches vainly for a decent job, a decent lifestyle and a woman he can love
