Inciting Social Change through Film: Using Marcus Banks’s Definition of Ethnographic Film to Discuss the Films of Participant Productions

Abstract

This article examines films produced by Participant Productions: Murderball, Good Night, and Good Luck, North Country, Syriana, and An Inconvenient Truth, using the three aspects— "intention", "event", and "reaction" as outlined by Marcus Banks (1992) to define an ethnographic film.
