Ethnographic Video Online or ‘Alexander Street Anthropology‘ is a collection of almost 700 films, covering every region of the world. It features the work of many of the most influential documentary filmmakers of the 20th century, including interviews, previously unreleased raw footage, field notes, study guides, and more.
For China, there is a collection of 12 titles, for Japan a collection of 21 titles and for Korea there is 1 title , plus another 12 for Taiwan and 3 for Tibet in Ethnographic Video Online.

The films all have transcripts, which are highlighted to show which part you are viewing. When scrolling through the transcript, you can click a section and the film jumps to your selected location! You can also make clips of the movies to save in your set (free registration), which you can embed or share. (click here for an example). All films can be viewed from your own desktop inside the Leiden University Network (and from home when you log in through VUW)
