    Summary: 
    "This project was conceived as a study inspired by the careers of Iranian art house filmmaker, Samira Makhmalbaf and Canadian First Nation documentary filmmaker, Alanis Obomsawin, and a single film from the oeuvre of each filmmaker: Makhmalbaf's The Blackboards (2000), and Obomsawin's The People of Kattawapiskak River (2012). By analyzing the media contexts of these two films, as well as inspecting key elements that constitute the profiles of each filmmaker, their films-as-cultural product, and their respective societies, the study ultimately expands on the discourse of artistic agency and Authorship within contemporary cultural institutions - and by extension, the contemporary social Networks they are part of - through the lens of Actor-Network Theory (Latour, 2005). As exemplified in the choice of ANT as methodology, this MRP will emphasize the imperatives of non-binary strategies, arguing that discourse and analysis based on binary propositions can no longer meet the needs of diverse global networks. As such, the choice of the examples from two vastly different cutures is a conscious and deliberate act to highlight the fact that Agency and Authorship in a networked world are more than ever contingent upon the co-operation of multiple Actors within social assemblages and networks, whatever their polity or social mores may be, as opposed to being attributes of self-contained or monadic entities." -- Abstract.
