Have you ever wondered what’s so ETHNO about our KINO? Well, we are wondering still and it is time to move this question forward.
So our 11th film season OFF-SCREEN is about the ethics and politics of research and representation and it is also about our darling ETHNOGRAPHY, a genre and methodology that is linked to European imperialism and colonialism.
ETHNO? KINO: Is the term ETHNOGRAPHIC FILM outdated? What does it mean anyway and why don’t we just call it documentary? Would it be a loss, if we leave this term, a disconnection from our roots in social anthropology? The seasons collective is critically engaging with the term “ethno” in EthnoKino and we want to lead this discussion
with all of you.
