This article presents a reanalysis of a scene we early filmed and edited in a Japanese preschool classroom. We use a variety of visual and narrative strategies to reframe the video, shifting attention from those we had in earlier editing and analyses decided were peripheral to the action. The article uses this example to address larger questions about who in an ethnographic film are considered to be the key protagonists deemed worthy of representation and of other culture-bound assumptions in visual storytelling.
