À propos de "Tristes Tropiques"
Jean-Pierre Beaurenaut, Jorge Bodanjsky
1991 - 46 min - 16 mm - Couleur - France

"As I admit myself traveller, archaeologist in space, trying in vain to restaure exotism with the help of paricles and fragments".
An initiatory journey on the tracks of a young unknown ethnographer, Claude Lévi-Strauss, who, from 1936 to 1938 wanders through savannahs and forests in Southern Brazil, searching for a primitive world.
A visual confrontation between the photographs and the films that Lévi-Strauss, took then and the film we made in the very places he visited among the Indians. In contraposition to these images, significant extracts from his intellectual auto-biography, "Tristes Tropiques", and the interview he gave us when we showed him our material.
