JEAN ROUCH, THE ADVENTUROUS FILMMAKER

Laurent Védrine

 Destiny of the director Jean Rouch intertwines with his abounding work : between ethnological research, surrealism, cinematic innovations and adventure stories set in Africa. The artist, born in 1917, marked the history of cinema of the second half of the 20th century. In Niamey, on the banks of the river Niger where he now lies, his travel companions and successors draw a portrait of a filmmaker who founded the ethnofiction and the cinéma vérité, capable of inventing his own life while telling the one of the others.
