Possibilities and Challenges: Issues in ethical filmmaking using It Stays With You as a case study'

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Two western Europeans produced a film 'It Stays With You: Use of Force by UN Peacekeepers in Haiti' (50 minutes, 2018) about the uses and results of violence by United Nations peacekeeping troops in Haiti. Here, they offer an opportunity to re ect on and learn from an array of themes that include wealth disparity, resource inequality, language barriers, distant communication, and physical and mental health. Such contrasts of access to resources test the possibilities that participatory practices can offer, and this chapter attempts to draw out what was achieved, and what was not, in such a collaboration, by reflecting on what challenges were faced, how these were addressed, and what lessons were learned.
