Questioning Authorship

Date Event has passed

No film is made alone. This session will question the idea of authorship in non-fiction cinema bringing together a panel of artists and filmmakers whose work foregrounds collaboration and challenges the traditional role of the director. The discussion will interrogate the power structures that are at play in non-fiction filmmaking and explore what happens when the director steps away from the camera. This session will be hosted by artist, film programmer, and researcher Abby Sun and speakers will include Basir Mahmood (Good Ended Happily), Rehana Zaman (Your Ecstatic Self) and Lina Mannheimer (Mating).

This event is free and available worldwide as a live-stream. Registration is required.
