Translated by Steven Feld

Visible Evidence Series, volume 13

Jean Rouch has made more than one hundred documentary films in West Africa
and France, pioneered numerous film techniques and technologies, and in the
process inspired generations of filmmakers. Ciné-Ethnography is a
long-overdue English-language resource that collects Rouch's key writings,
interviews, and other materials that distill his thinking on filmmaking,
ethnography, and his own career.

³The publication of Ciné-Ethnography by Jean Rouch, a living legend in
documentary film and world anthropology, is an event to celebrate. Ably
introduced and translated by Steven Feld, this book, which will be an
indispensable resource for any person interested in visual studies,
introduces readers to the provocatively challenging visual world of Jean
Rouch‹in his own worlds.  It is a wondrous world, indeed.² ‹Paul Stoller
