L’œuvre en double de Luc de Heusch

Abstract : The Belgian anthropologist Luc de Heusch is the author of some twenty films. Relatively removed from his research concerns, this wide-ranging filmography (documentaries, fiction, surrealist and ethnographic films) can be considered as a twin work, which complements and clarifies the development of his relationship with anthropology. Fête chez les Hamba, produced during a mission in the Congo (1953-1954), offers an opportunity to look back on his relationship with fieldwork and to better understand some of the reasons that led him to give up the ethnography of remote societies, on which he had projected surrealist-inspired expectations, in favor of structural anthropology.
