Unresolved Subjects in the Cinema of Statelessness
Keywords:borders, cinema, mobility, post-ethnographic, statelessness
Cinematic projections of refugees, exiles, and forced migration depart from the conventions of documentary fact to expand the experience of statelessness. For instance, Pierre-Yeves Vandeweerd’s post-ethnographic work configures voices and bodies onscreen to communicate political subjectivities lost to names, dates, and macropolitical events. These films thereby return existing questions about the unresolved sovereignties of states.
