Description

Donna Haraway: Storytelling for Earthly Survival

Dir. Fabrizio Terranova | Belgium | 2016 | 90 mins

In 1984, Donna Haraway penned the hugely influential essay A Cyborg Manifesto: Science, Technology and Socialist-Feminism in the Late Twentieth Century, a utopian text which sought to dismantle binaries between humans, machines and animals. The work inspired feminists, cyberpunks, academics, and environmentalists the world over to challenge normative structures and boundaries. In this one- of-a-kind portrait, Haraway outlines some of her boldest ideas to date. Her approach to writing is equally distinct, breaking with prevailing trends in theory by embracing narrative techniques in painting a rebellious and hopeful future. Through this, she reflects on everything from religion, to science fiction, the Anthropocene, and the emotional state of her elderly dog. Filmmaker Fabrizio Terranova delicately strings together Haraway’s winding reflections and insights with images of sea creatures and kooky animations, set against a breezy electronic score. (Keep your eyes open for subtle, yet clever green-screen experiments!) The result is a tranquil, yet playful meditation that dives headfirst into the mind of one of the most inventive and curious thinkers living today.

Bonus Australian short: Lullaby for a Mother and Child

Dir. Emma Lorie | Australia | 2017 | 7 mins

"There was once a mother and a child who lived far away...", and so begins the charming story of a rhino and her calf, who did everything together.
