Anthropologist Jean Rouch’s filmography includes over a hundred titles-from ethnographic studies of divine possession to a collective improvisation about itinerant chicken vendors-and although its central place in cinema history is recognized, the majority of it remains more talked about than seen.

This retrospective is supported by L’Institut Francais, Comité du Film Ethnographique, Archives françaises du film du CNC and by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
