Video: Between Documentary and Journalism
34:33 / 10. december 2015
A panel discussion on the power of documenting the world through a camera. We have invited three people with impressive experience within the field, to discuss and share with us their points of view on online video in the cross sector between journalism and documentary. Currently a significant shift is happening in the content and context of where we consume visual journalism. From being a medium devoted to cinema and television, video is increasingly taking on the internet. And not only with videos of cats and babies. Today’s panel brings in different perspectives on where online video is heading, and how it matters whether it is based on a journalistic agenda or film-driven background.

The panel consists of:

Charlotte Cook, the co-creator of The Intercept’s new filmmaker-driven visual journalism unit Field of Vision together with Laura Poitras and AJ Schnack. Launched this fall, Field of Vision is bringing forth highly important works of visual journalism through a wider community of filmmakers, engaging the creators to pair artistic filmmaking with journalism.

The director of video for vox.com, Joe Posner. Joe works at the intersection of documentary film, motion design and music. He created a series of animated political video essays called “Op-Video”, featured by Newsweek / Daily Beast and has contributed motion design to several of Jarecki’s feature documentary films.

Danish filmmaker, journalist and author, Nagieb Khaja. He is well known for his integrity when it comes to reporting on wars around the world, in places like Afghanistan and Syria. In 2012 he released “My Afghanistan - Life In The Forbidden Zone”, a documentary on daily life of the citizens in the war stricken country of his ancestors. As a journalist and filmmaker he has done work for media companies including VICE, BBC and Al Jazeera.

The panel is moderated by journalist and founder of Føljeton, Nikolai Thyssen.

The panel was a part of F:ACT CONFERENCE - New Media, New Journalism held on November 13, 2015 as a part of CPH:DOX. Read more here: http://cphdox.dk/en/more-than-films/fact-conference/
