Ethical issues surrounding film-making and research of social issues in our region
The event began with a screening of the documentary film "Bride Kidnaping in Kyrgyzstan" by Petr Lom, Associate Professor of the Department of Nationalism Studies at CEU and IPF faculty fellow in 2003/2004.
The screening was followed by a roundtable discussion and then an open debate started on the issues raised by the film and more general questions touching on: the subject of ethics and ethical guidelines in film-making and journalism generally; potential moral and academic obligations of researchers and journalists/film-makers to protect the human rights of those with whom they are working in the field. Where do obligations begin and end when a story needs to be told? How do we/should we influence those we study? What issues are raised by the male gaze on sensitive gender-related problems?
