Future Ecologies involves four short films exploring our environment, sustainability, past and future.
In this video compilation, a quartet of contemporary artists – Louis Henderson, Uriel Orlow, Charlotte Prodger and Ben Rivers – use film to investigate subjects as varied as herbal medicine, gender, and e-recycling, contemplating humanity’s past and future.
The line between yesterday’s utopias and tomorrow’s dystopias is a fine one. History’s mythic ideals have given way to our present predicament in the Anthropocene (the current geological age, in which humanity is the greatest environmental influence). Yet old myths persist in new, technologically smarter guises.
Through a mix of documentary, (science) fictional and poetic modes, the films in Future Ecologies bring together incisive views on the long historical arc of extraction and exploitation alongside several speculative projections for the future.
After booking your free ticket via Eventbrite, you will receive an email with a link and password to watch the film compilation, presented online by the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh until 28 February 2021.
