We will show a film about Donna Haraway who is one of our important well-known thinkers of today, especially in relation to feminism, science and the survival of our planet.

The film is created by Brussels filmmaker Fabrizio Terranova who visited philosopher, feminist, and science-fiction enthusiast Donna Haraway at her home in California, living with her – almost literally, for a few weeks, and there produced a quirky film portrait. Terranova allowed Haraway to speak in her own environment, using attractive staging that emphasised the playful, cerebral sensitivity of the scientist. The result is a rare, candid, intellectual portrait of a highly original thinker.

The screening will be followed by a conversation between Åsa Ståhl, Anna Kaijser and the audience.
