7 PM @ 518 Valencia

The nature documentary is all too familiar, and at the same time, all too strange. This talk explores the concept of uncanniness and scale in environmental documentary, and its exploration of the alien planet Earth – from the dioramas of anthropomorphic life story and love story, to the horizons of planetary survival, to micro-biomes which challenge the definition of life and narrative.

Dr. Amy Cutler will also discuss Thursday’s Exploratorium screening, Nature's Nickelodeons, and there will be a chance for a Q&A about radical nature documentary tactics related to voice, authority, charisma, science, gender, politics, and live cinema.

Amy Cutler is an artist, cultural geographer, curator, writer, and film-maker who works with ideas of geography and nonhuman others. She works frequently on the production of immersive and live cinema and exhibition events provoking and changing the public conversation around ideas of space, geography, and nature-cultures.
