Weaving the Life of Guatemala: A Participatory Approach to Cross-Cultural Filmmaking

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This conference paper explores the challenges of producing a digital film for Trama Textiles, a Guatemalan association of indigenous Mayan women weavers. This case demonstrates how the development of the video through participatory digital filmmaking practices, contributes to the process of social and economic development. While examining how empowerment and self-assertion of identity were transformed through this collaborative process, issues surrounding the complexities and tensions of producing video cross-culturally with a student production crew are discussed. The author’s experience contributes to enduring concerns about ethics of representation in video production, while also contributing to the discourse of education in international settings.
