  2. Burning-in Patterns

    Burning-in Patterns portrays the 83 year old ethnographic filmmaker Hermann Schlenker in his own museum. He completed more than 400 ethnographic films of indigenous communities around the world for the Institute for Scientific Film (IWF) in Göttingen, the BBC, Encyclopaedia Cinematographica (EC) and museums. By using the same techniques he himself used to create his ethnographic films, the resulting film examines the many ambiguities of ethnographic fieldwork, institutional archiving and the conservation of memory. Working within the “gaps” of montage and with the juxtaposition of image, text and sound, the film’s shifting narrative moves between filmic document, recounted memory and the act of staging.
