Elite Forever: Making an Ethnographic Film for a Public Audience
by Monahan, Trent, M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 43; 13903318
Abstract (Summary)

Elite Forever is a film that follows a young woman named Gee as she attempts to join the Main Street Elite, a social club that meets inside the Disneyland resort. The film was directed by Trent Monahan, was shot by Ilja.Maran and Tyler Denering, and was edited by Eric Malczewski. This project paper discusses the process of the film’s creation and contextualizes it within the history of ethnographic film. It also argues that ethnographic film must be engaged in public scholarship so that its impact is felt well beyond the classroom.
