This book which is edited by Arnd Schneider and Caterina Pasqualino urges a new dialogue between two seemingly separate fields. The book explores the practical and theoretical challenges arising from experimental film for anthropology, and vice versa, through a number of contact zones: trance, emotions and the senses, materiality and time, non-narrative content and montage. Experimental film and cinema are understood in this book as broad, inclusive categories covering many technical formats and historical traditions, to investigate the potential for new common practices. Arnd Schneider who has co-written the introduction also contributed the chapter "Stills that Move: Photofilm and Anthropology".
