This series highlights contemporary work produced at Harvard’s Sensory 
Ethnography Lab (SEL), exploring the intersection of cinema and 
anthropology. Directed by Lucien Castaing-Taylor and managed by Ernst 
Karel, the lab provides an academic context for the development of 
creative works that test and respond to the traditions of documentary 
film. Anthropologists and artists who conduct research at the SEL 
investigate processes of realism and representation, expanding the 
potential of visual and acoustic media to represent indigeneity and 
alterity, lived experience and cultural difference, around the world.
