The film ' ' The masters loucos' ' of Jean Rouch it is a set of documents concerning a ritual of the Haouka, a religious movement that appeared in the Nigria. According to Coast, the objective of the films of Rouch is to portray the desconstruo of worlds in crisis or ways if to lose. It films knowing that the image that we finish to see if it erases in the following instant and without the film everything what we see in them would escape. Still in accordance with Coast, for the director, with the film is not only possible to become visible the reality that if extinguishes as that one that if hides. For Rouch, the camera is the best form to reproduce what it is transferred and it been therefore that decides to make etnogrficos films. However, the camera does not pass unobserved, only can film to participate itself. It also has the question of that the director of the film is responsible not alone for deciding what will be filmed, but also for manipulating the images in the assembly.
Perhaps, these are some of the reasons for which the films of Rouch have been criticized. However, according to Ricardo Coast, Jean Rouch he is full of surprises, but always it respects the imperatives of science. For Evans-Pritchard (2005), the anthropologist who goes for the field must have preconceived ideas, because he was not thus, would not know what nor as to study. Thinking in such a way, the clippings of subject and image made by the director of the film can be compared with clippings of subject and made in daily of field of the anthropologist and this not necessarily it is bad, if made with scientific severity. Soon at the beginning, the film warns that scenes of violence and cruelty will be followed, that the ritual is a form to decide the problem of the readjustment and that it shows as certain Africans represent the civilization occidental person.
