This symposium asks, via in-depth consideration of films from China, Africa, the Caribbean, Central Asia, India and elsewhere, what the nature of the interplay is between the individual and culture and how this tension is played out in first person films. Leading theorists and practitioners explore ways in which the autobiographical filmmaker does not simply reflect on his/her cultural and ethnic background, but also serves as a reflection of it.
