As my role throughout my filming experience as a foreigner, my camera probably recorded the aspects that were most different from my own culture. This idea is going by the theory I have about a foreign experience. This theory applies to my experience. While in Ecuador, naturally I noticed the things that are much different than what I am accustomed to. This may have effected the things that I filmed. I tried to broaden my filming to aspects other than those that are dissimilar to my own culture. I always filmed what the Chango's, the family I worked with, presented me with. Unfortunately, however, I rarely filmed the family when they were casual. The majority of the film only portrays the most opposite portions of their lifestyle. The introduction and intermittent scenes are filled with contextual images of daily life. Obviously, the reason for making the movie is that the Canelos Quichua have a unique culture with traditions and practices that are different from ourselves in many ways. I hope the overall image of these people produced is accurate.
