(1968) Three Niger villagers trek to Ghana to make their fortune – and do! And then… frequent Rouch collaborator Damouré Zika, and other actors improvised the voiceover commentary; filmed in 1955 but unfinished for a decade. DCP. Approx. 90 min.
Presented with support from The George Fasel Memorial Fund for Classic French Cinema.
“The charming and rambling aspects of the narrative are a good deal closer to music than to painting — and to the kind of music that takes you places.”
– Jonathan Rosenbaum
