Long Abstract:

Visual anthropology took so called cultures as its object in the shadow of written anthropology in the 1970s. At the beginning of the 21st century David MacDougall proposed that visual anthropology should turn to social experience. Visual anthropology was initiated in China in the 1950s and it has rapidly developed in the past two decades. Many universities established courses of visual anthropology and ethnographic filmmaking. Two ethnographic film biennial festivals have been established. Life-world filmmaking is marked on the active cross-disciplinary practice of visual anthropology in China.
