Description

THE WHITE MAN’S A BURDEN: WHAT FUTURE FOR TV ANTHROPOLOGY?

Talk and Preview Screening by BAFTA award winning director Gavin Searle.

Television is one the main ways British people encounter The Other, but in an age where Love Island and The Bake Off dominate the schedules can anthropology still cut the mustard on TV?

Showing clips and a preview of his upcoming BBC series, The Last Treehouse, about the Korowai of West Papua, Director Gavin Searle discusses and evaluates 20 years of Anthropology on TV, exploring its ethics, its successes and failures to ask where do we go from here.

Come and help shape the debate on the future on anthropology on TV.

Gavin Searle is a graduate of the Granada Centre of Visual Anthropology and multiple BAFTA and RTS award winning director. Recent BBC Series include Last Treehouse (forthcoming); Millennium Goals (BBC1 2015); I Bought a Rainforest (BBC 2; 2014); Welcome to Lagos (BBC4 2011), Tribe (BBC2 2007).


Organised by The University of Manchester and the Granada Centre for Visual Anthopology, in association with Kinofilm Festival 2017.
