Creator:
Marie-Clemence Blanc-Paes and Cesar Paes
1989. 64 minutes Madagascar. Producer: Marie-Clemence Blanc-Paes, Director: Cesar Paes. Documentary

Iin Malagasy with English subtitles. The film pioneers a new approach to ethnographic filmmaking, at once scrupulously non-interpretive yet deeply evocative. The central character in Angano...Angano... is the oral tradition itself, passing down the wisdom of the ancestors - the "ear's inheritance" - through myths and folktales. Venerable storytellers recount for the camera and their listeners the founding myths of Malagasy culture. The filmmakers do not dramatize these tales, rather they document storytelling itself by placing it in its social and geographical context. The tales flow into and out of stunning shots of the daily Malagasy life which gave birth to them and which they in turn explain.
