Going Native: The Art of Ethnographic Filmmaking: Coffee with Ethnographic Filmmaker Bruno Moynié

Speaker Bruno Moynié took the time to meet with us and share some experiences from his life and his work at a small Italian Cafe near his Toronto office...

“When I was a student, I was studying the Senegalese community in Paris, and my thesis teacher came to the bar I was hanging out in, which was a hub of Senegalese culture, to see my work. And I remember, she said to me: ‘You’re not integrated, you’re assimilated!’ And this was not a compliment in her mouth. There is a term for that in ethnography: you went native.”
