Other Men

1 x 90 minutes for Arte France (2006)

From its beginnings, photography and cinema have been passionate about the way of life and rites of men belonging to traditional cultures, trying to capture through images a kind of essence of the way of life of other men. Looking at these images today necessarily implies a knowledge of the conditions in which they were made in order to measure their subjective dimension. Based on popular iconography, archive images and ethnographic films, this film questions the representations of the other and the evolution of our view of the so-called first peoples through the centuries.
