The Process: Poetic Re-presentation as Social Responsibility in a Collaborative Documentary
Abstract

Abstract:

In this essay I discuss the tension between ethical and aesthetic freedom in two documentaries that I made about aspects of the lives of Sudanese Australians. Focusing on issues of voice, framing and responsibility, I argue for a poetic approach in re-presenting auto/biographical stories that involve shared privacies and culturally sensitive material.
