#060 Freefall Anthropology

Curated by Marina Papazyan.
She worked for Impakt in 2017 and curated this program as part of her activities for Impakt.

From the words of the preachers in Hyde Park to the Purim celebrations in Tel Aviv — this program is all about videos problematising humans without the constraints brought by the discipline of anthropology. There is certainly more to visual anthropology than just ethnographic film.
