Description

With rapid advancements in the affordances of media technology, new forms of documentary practice are emerging. The question at hand is, how can we utilise these to engage with the real? This conversation between two women scholars working in the field spans quite different approaches and findings. Citt Williams, a professional practitioner, explores how technology currently enables us to tell stories of environmental complexity, whilst through an ethnographic lense, Franziska Weidle develops meta-perspectives on documentary filmmakers using digital technology.

Franziska Weidle is a research fellow at the German Research Foundation’s Training Group “Literature and Dissemination of Literature in the Digital Age” and a PhD candidate in Cultural and Visual Anthropology at the University of Göttingen. She works as an assistant of the Göttingen International Ethnographic Film Festival as well as a contributing editor for CulAnth.org and litlog.de.

Citt Williams is a passionate and proactive filmmaker and environmental scientist. Previously based at the United Nations University Media Studio in Tokyo, she is now embarking on her doctorate work with Professor Sarah Pink at RMIT’s Digital Ethnography Research Centre. She holds a MA in documentary (AFTRS), MSc in Climate Change (University of East Anglia) and MSc in Social Science of the Internet (University of Oxford). @cittw
