Abstract

This article examines three distinct examples of expedition filmmaking in the Lumière archive: the Village Ashanti series, Alexandre Promio’s North African street scenes, and Repas d’Indiens , a single shot from Mexico City. Taking departure as a historical fact and a critical tool, this article explores the visual, epistemological, and archival instabilities that the expedition films produce.
