Jean Rouch, Moi, un noir, 1957, 80 min.

The film, set in Abidjan, Ivory Coast depicts the lives of casual labor over the course of one week. The characters model themselves on fantasy characters- gangsters and FBI agents- from Hollywood films - living on dreams denied to them in their working class realities.
