Ethnographic Video Online contains over 1600 films, primarily ethnographic documentaries and interviews of anthropologists. The collection covers every region of the world and features the work of many of the most influential documentary filmmakers of the 20th century, including previously unreleased raw footage, field notes and study guides. Documentaries from key filmmakers such as John Marshall, Timothy Ash, Robert Gardner, David MacDougall, John Bishop, David Plath, and others provide long-term perspectives on the study of regions and cultures, as well as the historical development of documentary film itself. Each film includes a transcript. Clips and playlists can be created, saved and shared. Videos can be downloaded to an Apple OS or Android phone, available for 48 hours.
This collection includes both Ethnographic Video Volume I and Ethnographic Video Volume II. Voulme II provides an additional 450 films, including films from a number of new publishers and distributors, such as the Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI), ZED, and Documentary Educational Resources (DER)
