The Dogon of the Bandiagara Escarpment in eastern Mali held a particularly privileged place in Jean Rouch's personal imaginary. Rouch devoted a vast amount of time and energy to the filming of their major ritual cycle, the Sigui, in the years between 1966 and 1974. This chapter focuses not on the ethnographic substance of Rouch's work among the Dogon so much as the particular praxis that he deployed in making his films about the Sigui.
