The audiovisual section of the SIEF2023 closely follows and sensorially reflects the conference theme Living Uncertainty. The board of convenors decided to give space to the presentation of ethnographic films and film documentaries that seek an alternative new path not only for expressing and understanding the many uncertainties of the current world but also for the uncertain future that we already live in and has something to say. What will become visible and what will we hear when we begin to permeate the landscapes of an uncertain future?

By making these invisible landscapes visible, ethnologists, cultural and social anthropologists, and filmmakers bring important testimonies from these alternative ways of searching for an understanding of contemporary worlds.

The audiovisual program is structured according to the following issues: Sensory Landscapes, Future Unfolds, Witnessing Uncertainty, Identities in Transformation, Body and Intimacy.
