Thirza Cuthand, Reclamation (still), 2018.

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Thirza Cuthand’s Reclamation (2018), on view for two weeks from Sunday, October 25 through Saturday, November 7, 2020.

Reclamation is a documentary-style imagining of a post-dystopian future in Canada after massive climate change, wars, pollution, and the after-effects of the large-scale colonial project which has now destroyed the land. When Indigenous people are left behind after a massive exodus by primarily privileged white settlers who have moved to Mars, the original inhabitants of the land cope by trying to restore and rehabilitate the beautiful planet they belong to.

Reclamation is presented here as one of four films in Anthropocentric Pasts and Planetary Futures, or Death as New Beginning, the sixth and final program 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. On Sunday, November 8, 2020, the series will wrap with a repeat of all 22 films included in Parts One through Six—available for 24 hours from 12am to 11:59pm EST.
