  Language English
  Abstract Comprehensive ethnographic accounts, particularly those evolved over many years and which make use of a variety of media, represent one of the most valuable achievements of the anthropological project as a whole. In this lecture, the author argues that film-making holds great promise as a means of ethnographic description but that this promise has not yet been fully realised for a combination of reasons. These are partly technical, but above all, they are intellectual reasons associated with the historical development of anthropology as an academic discipline.
