MOI, UN NOIR

(1958, Jean Rouch): Day in the life of young Nigerien émigrés in Abidjan, Ivory Coast: “Edward G. Robinson” (played by Oumarou Ganda), “Eddie Constantine,” and “Tarzan” – yes, they’re movie buffs. DCP restoration. Approx. 70 min.

CABASCABO

(1968, Jean Rouch) Sembène called Rouch’s film one of the two on Africa that count, but wanted to see a follow up. Ten years later star Ganda provided it with Cabascabo, a semi-autobiographical portrait of a Nigerien man returned from Indochina, both a prequel and a riposte. DCP restoration. Approx. 45 min.
