This interview revolves around Vivian Wenli Lin’s use of participatory arts-based methods in order to encourage and teach women in marginalised communities to empower themselves by making documentary film. Lin also talks about the development of a ‘cine-feminist’ framework which in many ways extend feminist film studies by introducing ‘rare materials of women’s self-representations’. These films thus give way to documentary narratives of overlooked groups of women, and results in a documentary practice that is framed by social politics and activism.
