Need help finding ethnographic films online? Check out the online database Ethnographic Video Online available to all IU Bloomington users (on or off campus).
Ethnographic Video Online is a comprehensive online resource containing over 1,300 hours of streaming video, including ethnographic films, documentaries, select feature films, and previously unpublished fieldwork. It’s also a resource for a study of the discipline itself: By placing examples of traditional ethnographic methodologies alongside indigenous-made films representing previously overlooked perspectives, scholars, teachers and students of anthropology can gain a sense of the discipline’s history and of its future direction. Ethnographic Video Online includes:
Classic ethnographic films central to the history of the discipline;
Contemporary counterpoints and follow-up studies;
Films made by and for indigenous communities; and
Archives of work from major visual anthropology programs.
