Extending the Frame:
Ethnographic Film and the Potential of Multipart Work

Anna Grimshaw (Emory University)

For a century or more, ethnographic filmmakers have been expected to produce discrete, bounded films of a length that conforms to established conventions. But over the last decade changes in viewing patterns and the proliferation of web-based screening sites have brought new possibilities into view. What might these changes mean in terms of moving beyond the limitations of the self-standing film? How might a multipart approach allow filmmakers to broaden the scope of their inquiry and articulate more complex interpretive perspectives? What does extending the frame of ethnographic film offer to anthropological research and teaching?

 


Anna Grimshaw is the author of The Ethnographer’s Eye and co-author of Observational Cinema. For the last 10 years, she has been making films in Machiasport, a small fishing town in Downeast Maine. In 2013 she completed a four-part film work, Mr Coperthwaite: a life in the Maine Woods (Berkeley Media/RAI), a companion piece, A Chair: in six parts (RAI), At Low Tide (RAI), and recently completed seven-part series, George’s Place (RAI).  She teaches at Emory University.
