Director: Fabrizio Terranova. Belgium/France/Spain 2016.
Brighton Digital Festival and Duke’s at Komedia are proud to present Fabrizio Terranova’s portrait of iconic scholar Donna Haraway.
Donna Haraway’s groundbreaking work in science, technology, gender and trans-species relationships over the last four decades is marked by her deep commitments to feminism and environmentalism. Refusing to distinguish between humans and animals and machines, she proposed new ways of understanding our world that challenge normative structures and boundaries. Her approach to writing is equally distinct, breaking with prevailing trends in theory by embracing narrative techniques in painting a rebellious and hopeful future.
Recognising her singular talent for storytelling, Fabrizio Terranova spent a few weeks filming Haraway and her dog Cayenne in their Southern California home, exploring their personal universe as well as the longer development of Haraway’s views on kinship and planetary welfare. Animated by green screen projections, archival materials and fabulation, Donna Haraway: Story Telling For Earthly Survival is an appropriately eccentric response to a truly original thinker.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion led by the University of Sussex’s Digital Humanities Lab.
Special thanks to the Centre de l'Audiovisuel à Bruxelles.
