Film/Video History: Insiders vs. Outsiders: The Position of the Filmmaker in Postcolonial and Ethnographic Film and Video (FV4217.01)

Chelsea Knight

This course examines various filmmaking strategies around the representation of social conflict and post-colonialism. In particular, it examines the ethics around how we look out into the world as film and video makers from a given position and a given time: either as placed within a community or outside of it. The course includes screenings, discussions, lectures, readings in contemporary anthropology and social practice theory, and approaches problems around various revisionist histories, the political present, and possible futures.
