Translucent Being: Jean Rouch

With his enthusiasm for research and film, and especially through his “contact camera”, Jean Rouch combined science and art and thus fundamentally altered how research is done in the humanities, helped film set out in new directions, and gave us a new look at Africa and the world of images. In so doing, he became a leading figure of 20th-century film.
