restricted access Ethnographic Cinema (EC): A Manifesto / A Provocation (USA, 2003)

This manifesto challenges many of the received notions of what constitutes ethnographic cinema. Written at the height of the reimagining of the discipline of cultural anthropology by the likes of Michael Taussig, George E. Marcus, Michael M. J. Fischer, Roger Keesing, and many others (including Ruby himself), Ruby’s manifesto argues for an ethnographic cinema that is experimental, exploratory, and noncommercial.
