 Table/Debate : Collections, Memory, Representation and Decoloniality in Ethnographic Film

Film and photograph collections are fragments of memories rooted in the weight of years of experience with the other. Documentaries made from these archives seek to bring memories and representations to a general audience, mediated by editing and first-person narratives. The ethnographic situations experienced and the fieldwork leave their context and are mediated by the filmic narrative.

The viewer can see, feel and imagine the realities of those who produced the ethnographic archive. Researchers can relive these field experiences by recounting memories provoked by the images in these collections. Films made from archives offer a new generation the opportunity to live these experiences and understand the relationship between memory and filmic narrative. Sometimes, half a century of fieldwork life is summed up in a 60-minute film where each word brings together sensations, memories and representations, narrated in the first person. It proposes a debate on issues related to decoloniality, ethnographic collections and the relationship between memory and representation today.
