Ciné-Zoologie. Auto-ethnographie. Colonialisme-commercial. In 1924, Citroën sponsored an auto-chenille expedition across/through/over Africa. The trip was lead by Georges-Marie Haardt and directed by Léon Poirier. Two citroën-croisière films followed: Jaune (Asia) and Blanche (North America). Remixes and celebratory returns here and here. Neither comes close to the disjunction of the originals. Peter bloom reads the intersection between colonial fantasies and automobile industries here.
