Real World: Empowering Representations of Women through Film

Published on 12 September 2012

This article makes an argument for the added value of the use of documentary film in development research communication.

It draws broadly on the specific experience of the Real World film scheme developed by the Pathways of Women’s Empowerment Research Programme Consortium and Creative England, to create empowering representations of women. It argues that both researchers and film‐makers have much to gain by collaborating on the political project of co‐crafting a visual argument, to create a nuanced and emotive end product.
