A forensic examination of the attempted murder of a film. Ken Fero, Migrant Media.
Outlining the work of media activist collective Migrant Media we explore documentary practice as radical process in challenging dominant media and state narratives. A model of praxis is explored in through collectivity in cultural production, working with communities of interest to reach global audiences with impact. Issues of race and class are explored as resistance to state violence.
