(p.16) 2: The Surrealist Encounter
The Adventure of the Real
University of Chicago Press

This chapter explores the connections between ethnology and the Surrealist movement, since it was through a prior encounter with the latter that Jean Rouch discovered the former. The interests and attitudes that Rouch developed through his youthful encounter with Surrealism played an important part in molding his filmmaking method right until the end of his life, several decades after Surrealism had fallen out of fashion not merely in anthropology but also in the world of the arts more broadly defined.

Keywords:   Jean Rouch, filmmaking, Surrealism, ethnology, Surrealist movement
