UCL Anthropology (Open City Docs) runs a leading practical MA programme in Ethnographic & Documentary Film at UCL, now in its fifth year. Run by leading film practitioners, students receive high-quality, practice-based learning within a top-level university research environment. This event will feature three graduation films made by the most recent cohort of students. Lucia Molina Pflaum’s Sisters Speak follows five young muslim who host a controversial talk radio show in Luton. In an intimate portrait, the women share their beliefs, ambitions, and dreams - both on and off the air. Anak Malaysia, by Sarah Cowan, sheds light on Malaysia’s hidden issue of statelessness, following the filmmaker’s stateless mother during the final stage of her latest citizenship application. Lastly, Alice Aedy’s Disconnected explores loneliness amongst young people, exploring how despite the current generation having more tools to be ‘connected’, statistics show they feel more isolated than ever before. The filmmakers will introduce their films and be present for a Q&A with Professor Michael Stewart afterwards.
