Ethical Storytelling: How to Make a Film Without Pissing Everyone Off

Lectures

Nightingale-Brown House

Renee Tajima-Peña has filmed in diverse communities around the world, from the Vietnamese diaspora traversing Ho Chi Minh City to Kansas, to remnants of the Beat poets, a Chinese American debutante ball, LA’s Skid row, and her own blended Japanese and Mexican American families.  She will show clips of her work and discuss the ethical, cultural and political considerations of interviewing and filming as an insider and outsider. Students are invited to discuss their own projects and discuss strategies for ethical storytelling.
