TALK: THE WHITE STARTINGPOINT OF THE CAMERA
Who created the camera? With whom as a starting point, was the camera created? In the context of the screening of the documentary ‘Prism’ this conversation will reflect on the significance of the fact that the camera was technologically created with white skin as a starting point. It will reflect on the colonialist white gaze and how the global majority is portrayed in film. The filmmakers will talk about creating films from a technological and personal starting point.
