CINE 312 - Experimental Ecocinema

FC ARHU
4 credits
If cinema mediates the relation between human beings and the world, how does it fulfill that function with respect to the natural world? If nature is a category we can no longer take for granted, but must actively construct, what cinematic forms are best suited to this work? We will answer: experimental cinema. Key producers discussed include Stan Brakhage, Dahi Sao, Rose Lowder, James Benning, Jane and Louise Wilson, Babette Mangolte, and Bill Viola. Key themes include landscape and the ecological sublime; animals and wildlife; the materiality of the natural world; toxicity and pollution; energy and resource extraction; scarcity and conservation; and dwelling.
