Ella Raidel, Ph.D., is a filmmaker, artist and researcher. In her interdisciplinary works – films, videos, writings – she focuses on the socio-cultural aspects of globalization, urbanization and the representation of images. Her hybrid practice is to create a discursive space for filmmaking, art, and research.
In recent years, she has been concerned with China’s unprecedented growth and rapid urban changes, in experimenting with new documentary modes, narrations and methods. She is interested in reflexive forms of narration in questioning the representation in documentary films. Her film-making corresponds with her writings on Sinophone cinema for researching the poetics in image-making. Her work has been presented and distinguished in numerous international film festivals, exhibitions, and biennials. She is the co-editor (with Peng Hsiao-yen) of Altering Archives, The Politics of Memory in Sinophone Cinemas and Image Culture (Routledge Contemporary China Series 2018) and has publicized on the film director Tsai Ming-Liang.
