Student-based Film Projects
Students in their natural habitats
The short film "Students in their natural habitat" provides a satirical look into anthropology and fieldwork. The Indiana Jones cliché of anthropology as a media-driven quest for ‘foreign’ and ‘exotic’ adventures is delved into. The film’s central focus is a self-critical confrontation with exotisization and the explorer / discoverer spirit associated with the field.
Production: Merlin Pratsch and Bilge Alp Yildirim
