Screening | Donna Haraway & Fabrizio Terranova: Story Telling for Earthly Survival
February 22, 2018
Anthology Film Archives
This film portrays the groundbreaking thinker Donna Haraway’s pioneering work in science, technology, gender, and trans-species relationships over the last four decades, all of it marked by her deep commitments to feminism and environmentalism. Refusing to distinguish between humans and animals and machines, she proposes 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. Recognizing her singular talent for storytelling, Terranova spent a few weeks filming Haraway and her dog Cayenne in their California home, exploring their personal universe as well as the development of Haraway’s views on kinship and planetary welfare. For the NYC premiere of the film, Donna Haraway will give a video introduction, and Fabrizio Terranova will present a collection of YouTube clips that he and Haraway have selected.
