June 20 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Book launch of ‘Challenging the Narrative: Documentary Film as Participatory Practice in Conflict Situations’
The book addresses the role of filmmakers in creating platforms for survivors of political violence to tell their stories in order to challenge marginalizing narratives and injustices. Reflecting on films produced in the North of Ireland, South Africa, Haiti and Brazil, the challenges and limitations of participatory practice as a form of public acknowledgement are addressed.
