    Guns Kill, Machines Create celebrates women tattoo artists and highlights tattoo culture, addressing perceptions about those who modify their bodies as a means of representation. It helps to dispel myths that tattoos are indicators of violent behavior or drug use.

      In November 2014, we premiered 2 new Peruvian films and hosted a roving film festival just days ahead of COP20. Take a look at how the festival went. You can find other short films on a similar issue at If Not Us Then Who: ifnotusthenwho.me/ The films are a culmination of more than two years of participatory filming by Handcrafted Films. From Indonesia to Peru, we have been working with local partners to articulate individual stories through film. Using the powerful visuals they are now organising a global roadshow in the lead up to COP21 in Paris. Our aim is to draw attention to the wider issue of deforestation, community-based solutions and ultimately to put pressure on governments and their commitment to slow climate change.

        • Christine - Reflections

          from Krzysztof Bierski / Added

          This is a short video I made for Richmond Borough Mind as part of their Reflections Project during my doctoral research conducted between 2009 and 2011 in London. This film is part of a series, which depicts different individuals within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames who discuss their lived experience of mental illness and the things they do to maintain their well being. In this particular film Christine tells her story of her favourite place in Richmond- the Twickenham Riverside, where she finds a piece of mind and solution to her problems. From anthropological perspective, the films prompt questions of how people affected by mental heath problems develop and manage relationship between experience of mental health, recovery, nature and place. From methodological point of view, I explore the question of whether portraits can be considered as ethnographic. Secondly, I consider new dimension to participant observation or, observant participation, which emerged during the project.

                    Between 1957 and 1960, anthropologist Jorge Dias, one of the main figures of Portuguese colonial ethnography and Luso-Tropicalist Movement, conducted three successive field studies in the Macondes Plateau, in Northern Mozambique. The material he gathered would be compiled in the extensive monograph “Os Macondes de Moçambique” (1964-70), one of Portuguese anthropology’s most fundamental works. In 1959, during the third expedition to Mozambique, Jorge Dias stayed for some days in my family’s house, in Mucojo, where my grandfather was the post administrator. “Nshajo (The Game)” articulates the narration of a prosaic episode of Jorge Dias’ stay in Mucojo with an attempt of visual reflection on anthropological representation and the processes of empirical observation, imitation, and acculturation. Continuity lines are delineated between systems of representation and paroxysmal imaginaries through the combination of a fake anthropological documentary with familiar archive footage from Mozambique during Portuguese colonialism.
