UCL Anthropology (Open City Docs) runs a leading practical MA programme in Ethnographic & Documentary Film at UCL, now in its fifth year. Run by leading film practitioners, students receive high-quality, practice-based learning within a top-level university research environment.
This event features two of our finest student’s graduation films, with filmmakers present for a Q&A with Michael Stewart, director of Open City Docs. In Banuta Kalns-Timans’ Grierson Award shortlisted Unearthed, a team of international volunteers uncover the past buried beneath Latvia’s soil, looking to give the soldiers a proper burial. Oana Tenter’s The Pastor’s Women, a Pentecostal pastor’s wife in Romania looks, between care and cleaning, to radically change the way of life of her Roma people.
Part of the UCL It’s All Academic Festival, a free day packed full of talks, panel discussions, screenings, performances, workshops, interactive stands, exhibitions and tours. Join us to discover, discuss and be inspired by the exceptional breadth of research taking place at UCL. In between, relax and refresh with a range of pop-up food and drink stalls. Drop-ins welcome but booking advised for some events.
