Laura Horelli

The video has been realized in collaboration with four students from Department of International Immigration and Ethnic Relations (IMER), Malmö University, who have conducted empirical studies in Malmö around the issues of integration. The director was interested in placing researchers, who gather information from people, in the place of the subject and discussing the effect the researcher’s person had on the information gathered. The work examines the use of interviews as information in documentary work and social research.
