"Ethnography and Ethnographic Film: From Flaherty to Asch and After." (visual ethnographers Robert Flaherty and Timothy Asch) American Anthropologist v97, n2 (June, 1995):339 (9 pages).
Visual ethnographers Robert Flaherty and Timothy Asch's ethnographic films reflected and helped develop the methodology and themes of ethnographic research. Films such as Flaherty's 'Nanook of the North' and Asch's 'The Ax Fight' presented new approaches in ethnographic film production and subject representation. Asch's film also prefigured other ethnographers' attempts to present explanations of social data and applying such interpretations to higher-order analytical problems.

"Framed by the ethical considerations of Martha Nussbaum on 'the lives of distant others' and Zygmunt Bauman on 'being-for' the Other, this article critically analyses Australian director Denis O'Rourke's 'documentary fiction film' The Good Woman of Bangkok, the story of Aoi, a woman from a rural village in Udon in the northeast of Thailand who works in the Bangkok sex trade. The analysis attempts to give specificity and critical precision to what is too often a more intuitive and generalized critique of the contribution of current affairs programmes to the quality of understanding in the public sphere. The article combines textual analysis and social theory - two forms of analysis too often kept apart - to analyse the relationship between the text of the documentary per se and the conceptualization of social reality within that text. I argue that The Good Woman of Bangkok contains two tales or narratives, a simple one with a simple moral, and a more sophisticated, subversive one that is more attuned - albeit imperfectly - to the requirements of a mature public sphere. The more subversive thread undermines the simple tale by disrupting our belief in the overly naive picture of social reality that the latter depends upon. The article incorporates an argument for more dialogue between social theorists and documentary film makers." [Sage]

"The writer critiques the psychoanalytic discourse that has emerged around Jean Rouch's ethnographic movie, Les Maîtres Fous (The Mad Masters). The movie depicts an annual Hauka possession ceremony taking place just outside Accra at the time of British colonial rule. In its voice-over track and its construction of the diegesis, the director presents and interprets this ritual in a way that thwarts non-Western, non-psychoanalitically motivated interpretations of the events. Moreover, although Rouch later expressed dissatisfaction with the narrowness of his explication of the ritual, anthropologists and movie theorists have not probed deeper into the rationalizations that his voice-over provides. Rather, scholars have further embedded the discourse surrounding the movie within the realm of psychoanalysis by focusing on the so-called surreal facets of the ritual's extreme activities. Inadequate and Euro-centric, this Western interpretation of such a textually rich and complex movie shows the limitations of psychoanalytic movie theory with regards to "actuality" footage."
