It was 2014 – I was in a military hospital because of a strange illness – when I promised to myself that I would gather the energy to produce my first film.

Social media is becoming a central stage for different forms of storytelling, including visual stories of war. The talk will explore the role of visuals of conflict with the focus on the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh-War.

For some decades now, the documentation of social protests via video footage has become widespread. A lot of this footage never reached a broader audience. The video archives bak.ma and 858.ma are initiatives to gather activist video footage and make this accessible to the public. This is a valuable source for researchers and historians alike, but what impact do these hours of unedited material have to the social struggles themselves? (more…)
