Les films de Jean Rouch, archives uniques sur l’Afrique, petits bijoux pour les cinéphiles, sont aussi des contes qui mettent en scène des histoires toutes simples - la chasse, le voyage, l’amour et la mort, l’apprentissage et l’amitié - à la portée universelle. Certains films relèvent de la tradition anthropologique pure, d’autres de la fiction humoristique. Des thématiques (« Ciné-Transe », « Ciné-Conte », « Ciné-Plaisir » et « Ciné-Rencontre ») permettent de mieux appréhender la diversité, le foisonnement de l’œuvre Rouchienne. Des « viatiques », ou courtes introductions, dits par Bernard Surugue, replacent succinctement chaque film dans son histoire. Details

Genre: Drama

The first major work of Senegalese director Ousmane Sembene, this 1966 film is widely recognized as one of the founding works of African cinema. Diouanne Therese N'Bissine Diop, a young Senegalese woman, is employed as a governess for a French family in the city of Dakar. She soon becomes disillusioned when the family travels to the Riviera, where her comfortable duties as a nanny in a wealthy household are replaced by the drudgery and indignities of a maid. In a series of escalating confrontations with her mistress (Anne-Marie Jelinek), Diouanne is painfully reminded of her racial identity. She is caught in the tension between the French upper-class and post-colonial West Africa and finds herself alienated from both worlds. Along with narration and dialogue in French, this film also shares the sparse tone and visual style of French cinema of its period. Nevertheless, the influence of Sembene's European counterparts does not diminish this subtle but striking examination of racial and cultural prejudice. Details

Chronique d'un été (Chronicle of a Summer) is a documentary film made during the summer of 1960 by sociologist Edgar Morin and anthropologist and filmmaker Jean Rouch, with the esthetic collaboration of director cameraman Michel Brault. The film begins with a discussion between Rouch and Morin on whether or not it is possible to act sincerely in front of a camera. A cast of real life individuals are then introduced and are led by the filmmakers to discuss topics on the themes of French society and happiness in the working class. At the end of the movie, the filmmakers show their subjects the compiled footage and have the subjects discuss the level of reality that they thought the movie obtained. Details

Comedie utopiste | France 22 Fev 1973 | Réalisation Jacques DOILLON, Alain RESNAIS, Jean ROUCH

L’An 01 est à l’origine une bande-dessinée utopiste et écologiste de Gébé, publiée sous forme de série dès 1970 dans Politique Hebdo. En 1973, Jacques DOILLON en fait son premier film, avec la complicité d’Alain RESNAIS (pour la partie américaine) et de Jean ROUCH (pour la partie africaine). Une pléiade de jeunes comédiens, bientôt célèbres, y font leur première apparition à l’écran. Tout arrêter : arrêter de consommer, de produire, de travailler. Ce principe se répand comme une traînée de poudre, pour finalement mettre à bas l’organisation sociale existante. Partout dans le monde, de New-York à l’Afrique, la nouvelle se répand par les journaux. L’An 01 peut commencer... Details
