Among the special feautures of the Transgang Project there is the collaboration with cinema for the making of three documentary films in connection with ethnographic research.

While anthropology and cinema share a long story of encounters and exchanges, this relation has appeared to be both enriching and problematic. In the framework of the Transgang project, we try to establish a creative dialogue between the practice of ethnography and the practice of cinema on the common ground of fieldwork experience. The seminar will focus on the ongoing experiences of filmmaking in the three regions of the research project, with the participation of the directors involved.

The ongoing process involves research participants through the making of three documentary films that will tell the experiences of young people who belong or have belonged to street youth groups. The production of the films responds to the need to communicate research beyond the academic sphere, speaking to a wider audience through the language of cinema. Each film will be shot in one of the geographical areas where the project takes place: Southern Europe (Barcelona), North Africa (Tunisia) and Americas (Medellín, San Salvador).

The session will start with a brief introduction by Carles Feixa, PI of the Transgang Project. Margot Mecca, post-doctoral researcher of the Transgang team will then introduce the main aspects of the collaboration between cinema and ethnography developed in the framework of the Transgang project.

The directors taking part in the project will present their work: Andrés Duque, in the case of Southern Europe; Youssef Chebbi (with the production company Prima Luce), in the case of North Africa; Marcela Zamora (with the production company Kino Glaz) in the case of the Americas.

The last part of the session will be dedicated to an open discussion, moderated by Olatz González Abrisketa, anthropologist from Universidad del País Vasco/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitate.
