Petit à petit (Little by Little)

Jean Rouch, DVD, 96 min, France/Niger, 1971 (French)

This high farce cinéma vérité hybrid narrative documentary casts a critical gaze on cultural assumptions and turns the tables on white colonialists by making Parisians into objects of a Nigerien’s ethnographic study.

There will be a talk back following the film with Associate Professor Portia Cobb (Peck School of the Arts), Director of the Community Media Project.

Presented as part of the Tournées Film Festival
