Ethnographic Film
Karl G. Heider | ISBN: 0292714580 | PDF | 181 pages | 2006 | 1 MB

Ethnographic Film can rightly be considered a film primer for anthropologists." Choice "This is an interesting and useful book about what it means to be ethnographic and how this might affect ethnographic filmmaking for the better. It obviously belongs in all departments of anthropology, and most ethnographic filmmakers will want to read it.

In this new edition, Karl G. Heider thoroughly updates Ethnographic Film to reflect developments in the field over the three decades since its publication, focusing on the work of four seminal filmmakers—Jean Rouch, John Marshall, Robert Gardner, and Timothy Asch. He begins with an introduction to ethnographic film and a history of the medium. He then considers many attributes of ethnographic film, including the crucial need to present "whole acts," "whole bodies," "whole interactions," and "whole people" to preserve the integrity of the cultural context.

Audiovisions: Cinema and Television as Entr'actes in History (Amsterdam University Press - Film Culture in Transition)

Audiovisions: Cinema and Television as Entr'actes in History (Amsterdam University Press - Film Culture in Transition) by Siegfried Zielinski
English | June 1, 1999 | ISBN: 9053563032 | 357 Pages | PDF | 57 MB

The production, distribution, and perception of moving images are undergoing a radical transformation. Ever-faster computers, digital technology, and microelectronic are joining forces to produce advanced audiovision -the media vanishing point of the 20th century. Very little will remain unchanged.
The classic institutions for the mediation of film - cinema and television - are revealed to be no more than interludes in the broader history of the audiovisual media. This book interprets these changes not simply as a cultural loss but also as a challenge: the new audiovisions have to be confronted squarely to make strategic intervention possible.
