This talk will explore some overarching issues encountered when using filmmaking as a tool for advocacy or practical research. Suzanne Bouclin will outline how audio-visual and formal legal strategies differ but may also be used in tandem; explore the distinction between audio-visual advocacy and research; and outline some of the legal and ethical issues she has faced in creating or collaborating to create audio-visual representations on how homeless people experience law.
