planetary ruins & other possibilities is a program of experimental films that explore the ecological and geological as forms of media, archival sites, and spaces for speculative mining and mapping. In times of extraction and planetary disaster, what can ecologically and geologically-oriented films that explore non-human, more-than-human, and alien perspectives tell us about the historical and current conditions of global capitalism? Straddling the line between fiction and the real, this series of films also makes use of non- human presences and imagined scenarios in order to activate other kinds of temporal storytelling, while offering alternative approaches to media archaeology.
Curated by Dhvani Ramanujam. Co-presented by Archive/Counter-Archive.
