In this unit we explore how to view films as anthropologists. We examine changing strategies of ethnographic filming and the increasing role people play in filming and representing their own lives. Issues include the richness of the visual, the subjectivity of the filmmaker, ethnographic observation and fiction, and the politics of representation.
