    Abstract:
    This article places Visual Anthropology (and its important literatures) into critical conversation with longstanding theoretical arguments about the analytical limits of Native Anthropology. Using the discussion of self-reflexivity as an organizing principle, I argue that mobilizing digital video technology in “the field” (i) opens up empirical and theoretical space for re- conceptualizing the relationship between anthropologists and informants, (ii) demonstrates the flexibility of nativity as an anthropological designation, and (iii) provides tools for examining film’s production process as a mechanism for constructing filmmakers along with film subjects. I highlight some of the ways in which my own filmic and videographic exploits in Harlem, New York, are predicated on integral connections between seeing and being the proverbial other.
