New Digital Restoration! Jean Rouch 101
France | 1968 | Jean Rouch
In one of Jean Rouch’s most disarming “ethnofictions,” three young men from Niger leave their homeland to find work and opportunity in the Gold Coast (now Ghana). Originally filmed in the 1950s, with dialogue, sound, and the participants’ commentary added a few years later, this improvisational narrative constitutes a playful collaboration between all four men. Cleveland revival premiere! Subtitles. DCP. 93 min.
