Peaux Noires (Black Skins) was filmed during an exploration of Central Africa, undertaken by Jean D'Eame. Critics were struck by the resemblance between the ancient customs of the equatorial African tribes and the more famous rites of the European Age of Chivalry. It was speculated at the time that this was a holdover of the Crusades, and as such the film would appeal most to pedants and history students. At 80 minutes, Peaux Noires was unusually long for a documentary, but it was never dull. To keep the audience from getting confused, a narration was provided, coupled with close-ups of maps and charts.
