In this year’s Film Talk, Pavel Borecký speaks about LIVING WATER, his feature-length debut film. As a social anthropologist and audiovisual ethnographer, Borecký has devoted several years of research to understanding the conflict over the last abundant source of drinking water in the Wadi Rum region, which is being fought out between the Jordanian state, agricultural companies and the town’s inhabitants. In cooperation with the Vienna Visual Anthropology Lab at the IKSA/University of Vienna and the Visual Studies Platform at the CEU, we discuss new forms of ethnographic filmmaking and sensory ethnography and explore the ecographic and geopoetic dimensions of a “more-than-human” approach to storytelling that Pavel Borecký suggests in LIVING WATER.
