說明

人們究竟如何、又為什麼汲汲於用影片捕捉日常生活呢?這類影片能讓我們學到些什麼?本課程從質疑紀錄片和民族誌影片之間有所謂差異性存在出發,仔細考量此兩者如何描繪人類的文化生活,以及製片者的利益,即其拍攝動機,從對「非我族類」的好奇到藉著捕捉其「真實生活」而予以支持的關懷。學生將會觀賞到美國本土與國外的紀錄片,並將思考影像和「現實」之間的關係、藝術和觀察間的拉力、及製作人和拍攝對象之間的道德關係等議題。

Description

How — and why — do people seek to capture everyday life on film? What can we learn from such films? This course challenges distinctions commonly made between documentary and ethnographic films to consider how human cultural life is portrayed in both. It considers the interests which motivate such filmmakers ranging from curiosity about "exotic" peoples to a concern with capturing "real life" to a desire for advocacy. Students will view documentaries about people both in the US and abroad and will consider such issues as the relationship between film images and "reality," the tensions between art and observation, and the ethical relationship between filmmakers and those they film.
