A unique weekend of films covering more than a hundred years of cinema, on the ecology, ethics and aesthetics of the relationship between human and nonhuman animals, nature, and the moving image.
We kick off with a symposium on 'Screening Nature: Flora, Fauna, and the Moving Image', at Queen Mary, University of London, with keynotes by W. J. T. Mitchell (University of Chicago) and Claire Colebrook (Penn State), and an artist talk by Rose Lowder.
Events continue on Saturday 18 May, at the Whitechapel Gallery with the first of five programmes of screenings and discussion, to be continued throughout Sunday 19 May.
Films by the Lumières brothers, Joris Ivens, Percy Smith, Stan Brakhage, Kenneth Anger, Joyce Wieland, Mike Marshall, Susanne Bürner, Vladimir Tyulkin, Rose Lowder, Helga Fanderl, Ed Chell, Erin Espelie, Chen Sheinberg, Lucy Powell, Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi, and others.
