Donna Haraway: Storytelling for Earthly Survival
Dir. Fabrizio Terranova, 2016 | 90 minutes

This film, screening in conjunction with current exhibition On Fire: Climate and Crisis, explores feminist and environmentalist Donna Haraway’s ground breaking work in science, technology, gender, and trans-species relationships over the last four decades.

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.

Free, registration essentail.

This screening will be followed by Brisbane Queer Film Festival’s screening: Bloodsisters: Leather, Dykes, and Sadomasochism.
