In the 20's of the last century Bronislaw Malinowski wrote that the aim and ambition of the anthropologist should be 'to grasp the natives' point of view, his relation to life, to realize his vision of his world'. The first serious study which tried to embody that postulate was a project of S. Worth and J. Adair described in their book 'Through Navajo Eyes' (1972). Referring to this study the author analyses a few contemporary examples of films taken from outside of the discipline which use 'natives' perspective as a model. He concentrates on 'Born into Brothels' (Z. Briski, R. Kauffman, 2004), 'Kits' (B. Dzianowicz, 2007) and 'Un autre regard' (M. Latallo, 2007)
