Fall 2008 not offered
In this course we provide a broad perspective on ethnographic film within the context of nonfiction film in general. Concentrating on selected films and readings from around the world, we approach film as a mode of constructing reality. We explore the events and structures of everyday life, seeking the similarities and differences among societies through a comparison of cultural meanings in filmed visual images.
