Elizabeth A. Povinelli will deliver an in-depth masterclass to follow on from the Karrabing Film Collective screening as part of this year’s HOME Artist Film Weekender. Elizabeth is a professor of Anthropology & Gender Studies at Columbia University and a founding member of Karrabing Film Collective.
Karrabing Film Collective is a grassroots indigenous media group consisting of over thirty members, based in the Northern Territory, Australia. They approach filmmaking as a mode of self-organisation and a means of investigating contemporary social conditions of inequality.
In addition to her work with Karrabing, Elizabeth is a critical theorist whose work is focused on developing a critical theory of late liberalism that would support an anthropology of the otherwise. This potential theory has unfolded across five books, numerous essays, and thirty-five years of collaboration with her Indigenous colleagues in north Australia.
Join us for this intimate masterclass where you will have the chance to ask questions and hear first-hand from Elizabeth about her work and experiences.
This masterclass has been developed in collaboration with the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology.
The masterclass will be hosted on zoom and the Karrabing Film Collective films are available to watch online as part of the HOME Artist Film Weekender from Thu 3 Dec – Sun 6 Dec.
