Focus on Reunion Island

As part of our commitment to strengthen the audiovisual links within the Indian Ocean, and more specifically between cinema and TV professionals from South Africa and Reunion Island (a piece of France in the middle of the Indian Ocean), the French Embassy in South Africa and ADCAM (the Regional Commission for the development of cinema, audiovisual and multimedia in Reunion Island) are pleased to offer this focus on Reunion Island. It aims to present the Reunionese audiovisual industry along with a panorama of the best of what Reunion can offer in terms of documentaries:

The Rock River Great Small World

by Alexandre Boutié (Les Films 1,2,3…)

A documentary which beautifully captures the culture of Reunion by portraying several Reunionese fishermen, at the mouth of the “Rivière des Roches”.


Beyond the Summits

by Rémy Tézier
(Tec Tec Productions) A breathtaking profile of Catherine Destivelle, unveiling the magnificent Alpine environment and the immensity of the soaring rock faces.


Danyel Waro, Proud to Be a Bastard

by Thierry Hoarau (Imago)
A wonderful portrait of famous reunionese singer Daniel Waro, which allows us to discover this very unique traditional Black Reunionese song : Maloya.


Special Reunionese evening: Drinks, snacks and screenings of
Rock & Danyel Waro; Fri 13th / 5 pm at Alliance Française

Françoise Kersebet, chief representative of ADCAM, will be in attendance to present
the films, give an overview of the audiovisual industry of Reunion Island, and encourage future cooperation / co-productions between Reunionese and South- African professionals.
