MDOCS Storytellers’ Institute Festosium: Transnational Migration, Globalization, and Ethnographic Film in India

Still from the documentary film Sent Away Boys

Join us as award-winning filmmaker and visual anthropologist Harjant Gill discusses the findings of his ongoing ethnographic research exploring the intersections of masculinity, migration, and popular culture in northern India. Following the discussion will be a screening of his most recent documentary film Sent Away Boys that looks at the growing phenomenon of transnational migration from northern India among young Indian men, and how the rural landscapes are transformed by the absence.

This event is free and open to the public.

This event is organized by the John B. Moore Documentary Studies Collaborative (MDOCS) at Skidmore College as part of its second annual Storytellers’ Institute’s Festosium. This year documentary makers who explore the theme of Space and Place through film, sound, interactive media, museum curation, scholarship, etc. connect with Skidmore and community members during the weekend-long event. Join an international group of storytellers to explore these questions in events including film screenings, audio experiences, dialogues, and star gazing. See here for more information on all of the events taking place at various locations on the Skidmore campus from June 8-12.
