& An audio-visual introduction to the music of the Baka
Daisuke Bundo is one of the leading visual anthropologists in Japan, or more specifically, the provocative audio-visual poet who broadens the horizons of anthropological filmmaking. Since 1996, he has been working on the anthropological research on the Baka pygmies in the tropical rain forest in Cameroon particularly focusing on harmonious coexistence of nature and humans. With their unique montages and imaginative narratives, his films have been exploring the multi-sensory aspect of “being in the forest with Baka people” audio-visually. He has produced several documentary films that have been shown in internationally-acclaimed film and art festivals such as Cinéma du réel, Goettingen ethnographic film festival, Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions.
Hosted by Dr. Itsushi Kawase (National Museum of Ethnology, Osaka) and Kieran Hanson (Shooting Freetown / AllRitesReversed)
