Open City Docs Fest presents films by the Harvard Sensory Ethnography Lab


On Saturday 21st of June, Open City Docs Fest presents two events from the
Harvard Sensory Ethnography Lab (SEL). Currently, the talk of the
documentary world, SEL work between the factual and poetic, challenging
classic ethnography and documentary film.

To accompany the screening of their most recent feature Manakamana,
Open City Docs Fest is also screening a collection of their short films:

*"Shorts: Harvard Sensory Ethnography Lab" (2014), 16:00 Studio 1*
An eclectic selection of rarely seen short films produced by artists
working within the Harvard Sensory Ethnography Lab.

*Manakamana (2013), 20.30 ICA*
Manakamana is the latest work to emerge from the Harvard Sensory
Ethnography Lab and is a startling, one-of-a-kind documentary experience.
It is filmed entirely inside the narrow confines of a cable car
transporting villagers to an ancient mountaintop, temple high above a
jungle in Nepal. Over the course of eleven rides we gain a fascinating and
personal insight into the lives and perspectives of these passengers.

Open City Docs Fest is a live festival devoted to exploring the world
we live in through the vision of documentary film; creating a place
where people come together to celebrate the extraordinary and ordinary
lives of others.

Open City Docs Fest is organised by Open City Docs, creating an
environment where documentary film is as critical as other film genres
and enjoyed by more and more people. Open City Docs delivers films
screenings and live events, training programmes and projects
throughout the year including Open City Docs Fest, MyStreet and Open
City Docs School. (
