Becoming Earthly Film Season
Time & Location
About the Event
This first online film season at the Barn, curated by filmmaker Huw Wahl, is a space to come together and think about what an expanded, or broader notion of ecological cinema might look like. Through screenings, conversations, and Q&As with filmmakers who explore the materiality of what surrounds us and our day-to-day lives, the selection will draw us into encounters with the skin of the earth and the elements we find there (landscape, animal, tree, person, rock, plant), uncovering the unique making practices within which perhaps we can find new ways to think about climate advocacy, and the ecology of creativity itself. It seems that now more than ever - with the overwhelming flow of news, media and distraction - we need filmmaking that can cultivate our emotional resources, encourage changes in representation, and most importantly - sensitise us to the world and the shape of things to come.
Edgeland will feature as part of this film season, alonsgide another sound work by David Birchall 'Pomona January 27th 2020'. Find out more here.
