From 2021: Films, Talks & Events

Cinema Ecologica

#1 People with gills

Can cinema help us visualise the world as we would like to inhabit it? As far as Eye is concerned, the answer to that question is a resounding "yes".Film directors have used fiction to show how human beings relate to nature in all genres. Think of disaster films, films about pandemics, underwater creatures that can talk or plant-based lifeforms that colonise the body and mind of earthlings.

Much in life is uncertain, but one thing is sure, and that’s the current climate crisis. Cinema Ecologica shows us how filmmakers have been imagining the relationship between humankind and planet Earth, ranging from nerve-racking disaster films to artistic meditations, from romantic experiences of nature to bewildering SF.
