LITTLE BY LITTLE
PETIT À PETIT
1970, Icarus Films, 92 min, France/Niger, Dir: Jean Rouch

The most cutting of Rouch's collaborative ethno-fictions, this playful satire of European-African relations follows Nigeriens Damoure Zika and Lam Ibrahim, who had formed an import-export company at the end of the director’s JAGUAR three years earlier. As their enterprise, “Little By Little,” expands, the two travel to France for business advice, where they fall into their own version of contemporary European life and recruit some unlikely workers.
