Subject: Filming Labour and Precarity: Call for Films

[list_name ]


Call for Films

for the themed section
Filming Labour and Precarity

of the

8th Athens Ethnographic Film Festival


Since its very beginning, the Athens Ethnographic Film Festival has aimed at making the Festival accessible to wider audiences and promoting the educational and reflexive dimension of ethnographic cinema on social and political consideration. Thus, in 2014 the Festival introduced a themed section, which focuses on a different topic every year. This year's tribute emphasizes on the various filmic approaches of work, labour and precarity and will be curated by anthropologists Dimitra Kofti (Max Planck Institute) and Mao Mollona (Goldsmiths College).

This year's session is dedicated to films on labour, in an era of deepening precarity and deregulation of work. We invite film projects on work, labour, unemployment and scarcity of labour, unpaid labour, affective labour, inclusion and exclusion through work, migration and work, bondage labour, the experience of applying for jobs, the intertwinement of work with gender, ethnic and age inequality, all issues of great concern and debate today.

The session will present various approaches to filming labour and precarity, including documentary, participatory, docufiction, artistic and ethnographic forms of filmmaking. It will critically reflect on the relationships between film processes, aesthetics and the politics of representation and through an in-depth review of contemporary visual approaches to labour the session will engage with questions, such as: what insights can films on labour bring on the dynamics of contemporary capitalism? How can one respond to Harun Farocki’s claim that all films on labour take the perspective of capital? How can processes of filmmaking cast a critical light on different forms of material and immaterial labour?
