The Kingdom of Mozartbique
Feature Film, in postproduction
Rouch was right on it-an 8mm-project shot in the morning, developed footage by noon and projected that very same night. He called them 'cartes postales', right?! And whatever-else, that's a hard cultural s hift. I mean, postcards for the 'people' where they live. It's like receiving a souvenir of your own existence.
Rouch's daily films were considered 'proud fragments' of the on-going narrative of Mozambique. The new industry saw itself as a tool, an educational tool to create an independent Marxist state.
We're talking all non-fiction stuff. Marxists don't believe in fiction.
