CEE | Center for Experimental Ethnography
A Note from Ra' Anan:
I am privileged and grateful to be CEE fellow this semester and looking forwards to engaging with you all. Towards the upcoming meet-the-fellows event I am sharing links to 3 films I made about Israel/Palestine in the last two decades. The films disclose the way I position myself towards the place that I come from, and my effort to communicate my understanding of the conflict with audiences.
They also demonstrate a shift in my understanding of the power relations that underly my making these films over this period of time, and an aesthetical shift from a cinema that wants to capture beauty of landscapes and of faces; to explore people’s actions and body language - to an almost emotionless, claustrophobic, almost suffocated filmmaking. This trajectory was not premeditated – it was informed by the question that the very making, and releasing of each of these films into the world brought up and if interesting for the group I am happy to share some thoughts.
