NYU Doctoral students Alia Ayman and Melissa Lefkowitz recently published an edited transcript of their organized panel discussion “Making the Rounds: Ethnographic Film in Circulation” in the Cultural Anthropology website’s Visual and New Media Review. The event featured five anthropologists, filmmakers, and industry professionals whose work is integral to thinking about ethnographic film today to discuss their perspectives on the genre: Alice Apley, Executive Director of Documentary Educational Resources; Rachel Chanoff, Director of THE OFFICE performing arts + film; Faye Ginsburg, David B. Kriser Professor and Director of the Center for Media, Culture, and History at New York University; Toby Lee, Assistant Professor in the Department of Cinema Studies at New York University; and Pegi Vail, Associate Director of the Center for Media, Culture and History.
