CAREMOTION –noun- finding balance between the care of others and self, and the emotions during video making.
Etymology (coined in Canterbury 2017) – a synthesis of care, motion, emotion, motion picture and commotion.

This year's screening and celebration of our final year visual anthropology projects was a tremendously rich experience. Many of the people in the films attended and contributed to the discussions and Q & A sessions. After each series of projects the audience had the opportunity to share their impressions in small groups before directing attention to the filmmakers. Our discussion started from the filmmakers making observations about the connections between their films and what it was like to see it on the big screen.

The UK Visual Anthropology blog post includes audio of the Q & A sessions, photos from the event, and presents the prize-winning films at the end. For more information, some of the films have websites. There you can explore and find links to the films.
