Josh Eisen

Joshua Eisen is a Toronto-based anthropologist with a special interest in cultural marginalization and ethnographic film. He received his MA in cultural anthropology from McGill University, where he produced, shot, and directed an ethnographic short on bluegrass musicians in Montreal. His research has taken him to various exotic locales; he's spent months researching meditation at a Buddhist monastery in China and following chimpanzees through the forests of southwestern Uganda. He is excited to be working on Billsville, a project which combines his love of careful ethnographic portraits of marginal communities with his interest in outsider art.
