Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival

dir. Fabrizio Terranova, 2017, 81 min.

This playful and incisive documentary is an engaging portrait of feminist technoscience philosopher Donna Haraway. Haraway's innovative storytelling seeks to rethink relationships and kinships across species breaking human-nonhuman divides. The film assembles green screen projections, animations, and fabulations to demonstrate and perform Haraway's playful and ground-breaking scholarship on gender, postcolonialism, animals, posthumanism, and cyborgs.

Introductions by Knar Gavin (PhD Candidate, Penn English) and Aylin Malcolm (PhD Candidate, Penn English). Post-screening panel discussion with Pablo Aguilera Del Castillo and Rebecca Winkler (PhD students, Anthropology), and Nikhil Dharan (PhD student, History and Sociology of Science). 

Note: Haraway will not be in attendance at this event.


Film series presented by Wolf Humanities Center and Cinema and Media Studies Program and cosponsored by Penn's Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and Scribe Video Center.

Curated by Rahul Mukherjee, Dick Wolf Assistant Professor of Television and New Media Studies, Assistant Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania.
