THE HUMAN PYRAMID

2:20

Sunday, February 4

Directed by Jean Rouch

(1961) In a lycée in Abidjan, Rouch assigns the roles for an examination of racial separatism, with the improvising taking unexpected twists and turns, topped by the actors’ own idea for an ending after seeing the near-completed film. DCP. Approx. 90 min.

Presented with support from The George Fasel Memorial Fund for Classic French Cinema.

Reviews

“Groundbreaking metafiction… As much a political experiment as an artistic one… Rouch has a keen eye for the landscape and an avid tenderness for his performers.”
– The New Yorker
