7–9pm

Queensland Film Festival (QFF) and the IMA present a free screening of Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival, a film that celebrates the incredible life and work of Donna Haraway.

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

Donna Haraway’s ground-breaking work in science, technology, gender and trans-species relationships over the last four decades is marked by her deep commitment to feminism and environmentalism. Refusing to distinguish between humans, 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. Brought to life through green screen projections, archival materials, and magic realism, Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival is an appropriately eccentric response to a truly original thinker.
