Event description

Description

Investigate the representational, methodological, and ethical issues in approaching and working through a documentary project about a culture other than your own through four ethnographic documentary shorts produced in the Program in Culture & Media at New York University.

Neta Alexander's Grounded takes us to a place where adults relive their summer-camp experiences and rediscover their identity without cell phones. In Matthew Cusimano's The Love Industry, a ghostwriter of online dating profiles and a wedding videographer reflect on romance in the digital age. In Christine Mladic Janney’s Living Quechua, a Brooklyn Peruvian woman’s mission to connect speakers of her native Quechua reveals New York City as a bubbling crockpot of linguistic diversity. In Devin Thomas' Thiaroye by the Sea, A Senegalese woman living in the sprawl of Dakar pursues a career as a rapper against all odds.

Followed by a Q&A with Brooklyn-based filmmakers and Dr. Pegi Vail, documentary professor, the Program in Culture & Media at New York University. Presented in partnership with the Program in Culture & Media at New York University.
