About the Event

 

Lecture description:

 

Anthropology as a discipline has encountered with the issues of identity and otherness since its earliest steps. In parallel, it has formed a unique relationship with the “image” and especially with the “moving image”. The history of the genre that is called “ethnographic cinema” reflects the evolvement of this relationship. During the last four decades “visual anthropology” has been a dynamic field where the issues of ethnographic cinema and visual representation within anthropology are dynamically debated. Nowadays, the production of ethnographic films is constantly increasing and the theory and methods they carry are often challenging the stereotypes through which we view films and their subjects.

 

The workshop will be a short introduction to the history of ethnographic cinema and will present current trends in visual anthropology and the filmic representations of “distant” and “familiar” subjects through several fragments of films. Screenings with selected films relevant to the ALIEN project will follow.
