“From extraction to domesticity, from East Germany to Asbestos, Quebec, from the Walter Benjamin monument to Columbus’s first encounter with the Taíno: the films in this programme utilise performative, rather than representational, approaches to engaging with spaces that reveal and conceal human, material, and ecological histories.” – Sasha Litvintseva.
Selected for the festival by guest artist and curator Sasha Litvintseva (November Film Festival), this programme offers intriguing connections between divergent landscapes and histories that explore post-industrial environments within their own terms.
