    The french colonial cinema has influenced the Moroccan Director Mohamed Osfour (1927-2005) whose movies featured moroccan actors playing westernized characters such as Tarzan, Robin Hood or Othello. The characters were in some way quickly accepted as mirrors of migratory progress in the collective imagination of the bidonvilles. I am using the character Tarzan as my alter ego to explore Paris cinematographically. Tarzan will be intervening with the different ideas of the exotic in the Parisian architecture and public space. The scenes are inspired by comic book versions of Tarzan from different times and countries.
