Catalog: FA4033


Designed by writer Max-Pol Fouchet in 1966, “Afrique Noire” is a documentary film that is one of the most beautiful odes to Africa. It will overwhelm watchers with emotion, reflections, and curiosity about the otherness of other civilizations. With the maturity and the modernity to understand without judging, to explain without reducing, and to seduce with reality, Max-Pol Fouchet, author of the book The Naked Peoples, presents the unparalleled summit of the cultural documentary. Adeline Baldacchino, author of Max-Pol Fouchet’s biography, explains that “Black Africa is poetry in the most essential form, that which brings us closer to the sacred. If it is necessary today to be interested in the vision of Max-Pol Fouchet, it is not simply as a historian, or even ethnologist, but in esthete.”
