e-flux presents Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory
Arjuna Neuman and Denise Ferreira da Silva, 4 Waters-Deep Implicancy | Part Four – Reading the Earth
Sunday, September 27—Saturday, October 10, 2020

Arjuna Neuman and Denise Ferreira da Silva, 4 Waters-Deep Implicancy (still), 2018.

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Arjuna Neuman and Denise Ferreira da Silva's 4 Waters-Deep Implicancy (20xx), on view from Sunday, September 27 through Saturday, October 10, 2020.

4 Waters-Deep Implicancy is a call to re-think our planetary relationships. The film asks us to consider our world out of time, to think about a primordial moment of entanglement prior to the separation of matter into the forms we currently know, both human and non-human—a time the filmmakers describe as “deep implicancy.” Moving across four bodies of water—the Mediterranean, the Pacific, the Atlantic, and the Indian Ocean—the film follows the movement of people as well as elements and matter, taking a planetary view of the present and inviting us to question the ethics that drive our current moment.

4 Waters-Deep Implicancy 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.
