Screening organized by Rokolectiv Festival
Rokolectiv presents the screening of “DONNA HARAWAY: STORY TELLING FOR EARTHLY SURVIVAL” a film by Fabrizio Terranova
Feminist thinker and historian of science Donna Haraway is perhaps best known as the author of two revolutionary works: the essay "A Cyborg Manifesto" and the book Primate Visions. Both set out to upend well-established "common sense" categories: breaking down the boundaries among humans, animals, and machines while challenging gender essentialism and questioning the underlying assumptions of humanity’s fascination with primates through a post-colonial lens.
The film features Haraway in a playful and engaging exploration of her life, influences, and ideas.
