SYNOPSIS This presents a formative history of cultural anthropology. The series focuses on the shift from "armchair" anthropology to the practice of anthropological fieldwork, by spotlighting the work of a number of early influential anthropologists. William Rivers - Everything Is Relatives: William Rivers originally trained as a doctor. On a Cambridge University expedition to the Torres Straits north of Australia, his psychological tests on the islanders made him realize the unexpected importance of relatives in their society. His subsequent work as a pioneering psychologist in the First World War and his research into the workings of the nervous system and the action of drugs on the human body, enabled Rivers to bring something new to anthropology: a scientific approach. His field study with a hill tribe in southern India, the Todas, ultimately set the trend for anthropologists to go and visit the cultures in which they were interested, rather than staying at home and theorizing.
SYNOPSIS This brilliant and keenly observed documentary, by renowned ethnographic filmmaker Judith MacDougall, explores the digital revolution in China, where photography is known as the "art of regret." A profound and seminal meditation on the uses of photography and image making in a culture very much in flux, the film demonstrates that difficult choices about how to regard history, reality, and material culture face everyone in contemporary China. The Art of Regret incisively examines one of the most vexing and provocative questions surrounding photography today: do people want photography to be a medium of preservation and evidence, or of transformation and fantasy? While the Chinese cherish old photographs and the memories those photographic relics preserve, they also can -- and do -- visit computerized photo stalls in department stores and become transformed into movie stars. 2b1af7f3a8
