robert gardner meets jean rouch




Aside from his impressive body of work as filmmaker, Robert Gardner was also known for developing and hosting "Screening Room", a TV programme designed to provide independent filmmakers, who are now considered the most influential contributors to their respective fields, a chance to show their work. 

One of the very last shows Gardner hosted had Jean Rouch as its guest; two giants of the anthropology and documentary filmmaking field sharing a discussion about their approach to work, their experiences and their films.
