Cinema and Anthropology. Film as a Source of Knowledge
Abstract: The contemporary anthropological thought broadens the scope of research, being concerned with film, visuality, and image. In this context, a wide and non-standard approach to footage is present here. Film is no longer seen merely as a method of visual record of the image of other cultures, but it can be viewed as a work of art itself. Therefore, a standard documentary is not the only valuable source of knowledge for anthropology. As a result, an artistic or experimental film with its avant-garde techniques and creative methods may become an area of research.
