Filmmaking and viewing is bound in spectatorship. How has the relationship between seeing and watching evolved in our era of hyper surveillance? How does documentary practice reproduce this dynamic? How are filmmakers responding? This panel will also consider the use of filmmaking as a tool to revert the gaze and “watch the watchers.” Panelists include: Assia Boundaou, Lyric Cabral, and El Sawyer.

This panel is a BlackStar Film Festival event, and is free and open to all. Register through the link below.
