Anna Tsing, ground-breaking, acclaimed anthropologist in conversation with award-winning filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer.
How do we tell stories of the aftermath of runaway, catastrophic change? How do we narrate survival among the ruins left behind by capitalism?
Anna Tsing, ground-breaking, acclaimed anthropologist (Mushroom at the End of the World; the Feral Atlas project) in conversation with award-winning filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer (The Act of Killing; The Look of Silence). Both began their careers in Indonesia; they discuss the different trajectories they followed and the overlap of interests in their recent and current work.
This dialogue is the fourth in a series of events hosted by the Documentary of the Imagination research project at CREAM (Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media) at the University of Westminster. The project is led by Joshua Oppenheimer and Rosie Thomas and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The event is co-hosted by Doc Society and CPH:DOX.
