Psychocultural Cinema is a collaborative website designed to present material and stimulate dialogue about the abiding and emerging concerns of psychological and visual anthropology. Psychocultural Cinema will provide a forum for anthropologists, filmmakers, students, and film subjects to share their work and ideas and reflect on their participation in ethnographic projects. Rooted at the nexus of psychology, anthropology, and filmmaking, posts will also branch out to address other topics pertinent to this inherently interdisciplinary and broadly engaged conversation.
Psychoculturalcinema was founded by Elemental Productions, an independent award-winning ethnographic film company working primarily in Indonesia. Readers will find multi-media content curated from Elemental Production crew, guest bloggers, and film subjects, including personal reflections, theoretical investigations, visual essays, and notes from the field.
