This seminar will address ethics in documentary filmmaking and photography practices and social justice. How do we engage in ethical and responsible representations in the process of recording our stories? In this single-session seminar, filmmaker and photojournalist Annie Sakkab will explore the practice of documentary filmmaking and photography.
Participants will learn how to navigate vulnerable subject matter and explore the relationship between documentary representation and minority communities and communities experiencing social injustice.
