From landscape cinema to underwater GoPro videos, environmental films connect issues of representation to conversations about climate change, the perspectives of plants and animals, and land politics. This course asks students to study these ideas, as they also pick up cameras to make their own films. Course readings will include a range of contemporary ecological perspectives, including texts from Feminist Science and Technology Studies, Black Studies, and Indigenous Studies. Screenings will include the work of filmmakers like Sky Hopinka, Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel, Thirza Cuthand, James Benning, John Akomfrah, and many more. In addition to reading and viewing, work for this course involves a series of video production assignments paired with short written responses, as well as exploratory outdoor exercises.
