Representing others – let’s start from the beginning
Representing other in film – weather it is the thematic focus or research method – always mirrors the position of the author behind the camera. Ethic, aesthetic and political positioning of the author in the film is being read regardless of the initial intention of the author so in that sense every representation is also self-representation. Which methods do we use to negotiate the space between personal ambitions and the narratives of the others? Are we directing or co-creating with the protagonists? When and under what conditions inclusion becomes exploitation and when is it considered as participation?
