LES CAFÉS D'ANNECOM - Les années Ovahimba / Rina Sherman - Octobre 2015 - vidéo Dailymotion

Ethnographe, cinéaste et photographe, Rina Sherman a vécu pendant sept ans au sein d’une communauté Ovahimba d’Afrique australe. Au cours de ces années, elle a rassemblé un riche fonds d’images vidéo, de photographies, de notes et de dessins qu’elle a choisi de donner à la BnF. A travers l’humanité du regard de l’ethnographe, l’exposition multimédia qui lui est consacrée livre un témoignage unique sur le temps du quotidien de cette société d’éleveurs de bœufs et son patrimoine culturel immatériel. Une expérience partagée à découvrir à la Bibliothèque. Les Ovahimba sont installés de part et d’autre de la rivière Kunene qui forme la frontière entre la Namibie et l’Angola. Rina Sherman a partagé la vie d’une petite communauté entre 1997 et 2004. De son étude, elle a rapporté une centaine d’heures de vidéo et de sons et des milliers de clichés. Le fonds d’archives « Les Années Ovahimba – The Ovahimba Years » compose un tableau d’une immense richesse des sociétés de langue Otjiherero d’Afrique australe. En faisant don de ses documents à la BnF, Rina Sherman veut garantir la pérennité de ces archives, qui sont pour la plupart fixées sur des supports audiovisuels et numériques fragiles. La valeur de témoignage de ce fonds est d’autant plus forte que la société Ovahimba connaît depuis plusieurs années une rapide évolution de sa façon de vivre en raison d’un contact croissant avec d’autres modes de vie.

2. Post to Facebook - in the end, the more people hear about them, the more likely they are to meet their target.

Thank you!

 from September 29, 2015 to November 15, 2015 François-Mitterrand / Donors’ gallery
The Ovahimba, a community of cattle farmers, live on both sides of the Kunene River that forms the border between Namibia and Angola. From 1997 to 2004, the ethnographer, filmmaker and photographer Rina Sherman shared the life of an extended family during a fieldwork study of seven years. During this time, she created in-depth documentation of some aspects of their everyday and ritual lives. The archival collection “The Ovahimba Years – Les années Ovahimba”, consisting of several hundred hours of video and sound, thousands of photographs and many notes, composes a unique ensemble of this community, both of universal interest and innovative as an ethnography. Rina Sherman donated it to the BNF in 2014.
