At the end of the twentieth century - ethnographic film finally seems on the verge of some serious theoretical debates and a critical reexamination of film as a way of communicating anthropological knowledge!

 

There is widespread concern with finding solutions to the so-called crisis of representation. Since pictorial media are logically at the center of any debate about representation, it may be possible - for the first time - to bring ethnographic film into the midst of anthropological concerns.

 

To do so means creating a critical approach that borrows selectively from film, communication, media, and cultural studies.

 

The promise is the construction of a theory and practice of ethnographic film

 

In addition, there would be a clear demarcation between ethnographic film and other pictorial attempts to represent cultureā€¦
