Pratap Rughani, a member of the executive group of the Institute of Communication Ethics, has come runner-up for the ‘Best Practice Research Portfolio’ award from the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies (BAFTSS) for his film Justine (http://Justine http://screenworks.org.uk/archive/volume-6/justine]Justine) and the research content it developed.

The film, a portrait of a young woman who rarely speaks, has featured at many film festivals (including the Human Rights Film Festival in Denver, Colorado). It seeks to develop new forms of filming and post-production based on a method of navigating the ‘art of not knowing’ with empathic looking and listening.

Dr Rughani, who is Reader and Course Leader in the Documentary Film MA at the London College of Communication, is now aiming to create a free online teaching resource to help students acquire a clear insight ‘into the ethics and research context of art and film practice that asks challenging questions about how to represent radically different Others’.
