Anthropologist, film and creation of reality

I read a few chapters of this text when writing the profile of the project; now that I’ve read the book in full, what I admire about it is that it’s in many ways a philosophical ethnography of creative labor: a consideration of the role of art in how we look at things and reproduce what we think we know about what we see, in the understanding of and creation of reality. I also get the impression that this aspect of the project was hard to wrangle, given that you were working with so many different points of view: cinematographers, actors, directors, writers, composers, editors, all the various technicians and artisans who collaborate to make a film. Were there any people in the filmmaking process you didn’t get a chance to study?
