You are invited to join us on September 18 at 4 pm in FSS 4007 for a screening of an experimental and interactive ethnographic film "Maribor Uprising." The film, made by anthropologist Maple Razsa, Associate Professor of Global Studies at Colby College, documents a series of dramatic protests in the postindustrial Slovenian town of Maribor. At the same time, the film prompts its viewers to ask themselves what would they do if they took part in the protest. The interactive nature of the film allows its audience to make decisions in crucial moments in the film, which determine which aspects of the protest the viewers will follow.

 

This film is particularly relevant to students interested in political anthropology, social movements and protest politics, as well as ethnographic film, multimodal ethnography and experimental research methods.

 

 The event will take place in English.

We hope to see you on September 18.
