Page Not Found is proud to conclude The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend with the free screening of this documentary by Fabrizio Terranova, giving a clever and insightful glimpse into the thought of a major contemporary figure.
Donna Haraway is a prominent scholar in the field of science and technology, a feminist, and a science-fiction enthusiast who works at building a bridge between science and fiction. She became known in the 1980s through her work on gender, identity, and technology, which broke with the prevailing trends and opened the door to a frank and cheerful trans species feminism. Haraway is a gifted storyteller who paints a rebellious and hopeful universe teeming with critters and trans species, in an era of disasters. Brussels filmmaker Fabrizio Terranova visited 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 open-air art cinema is located under the fruit trees at ‘t Gras v/d Buren (opposite Nest). There will be drinks and chairs, beanbags and leather armchairs, but don’t hesitate to bring a blanket or a picnic!
