e-flux presents Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory Un-Pollute

3 Minutes

September 27–October 10, 2020

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Zlatko Ćosić’s Un-Pollute (2017), on view from Sunday, September 27 through Saturday, October 10, 2020.

Un-Pollute is a short video that entices us with the possibility of reversing humanmade damage to the planet. A smokestack consumes a plume of vapor, silhouetted against a pale gray sky. The video manifests our desire to un-pollute via images of humanmade machines that inhale humanmade pollution, allowing us to produce and consume energy and its products without interference. At times, it appears as if the final plume of toxins will be reabsorbed by the smokestack, but more smoke reconstitutes as if from thin air.

Un-Pollute is presented here as one of five films in Part Four | Reading the Earth: Vibrant Matter and Human Hubris, the fourth of six programs in the online film and discussion series Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory programmed by Lukas Brasiskis for e-flux Video & Film.

Ecology After Nature runs from August 14 through November 8, 2020. The films in Part Four will screen for two weeks, and subsequent parts will follow bi-weekly, with new films screened every other Sunday.
