Part One | Extraction

Part One | Extraction: Environments and Communities

In Part One of the series Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory, David Kelley and Patty Chang’s Spiritual Myopia, Daniel Mann and Eitan Efrat’s The Magic Mountain, and Sasha Litvintseva and Graeme Arnfield’s Asbestos investigate different angles of the human inclination to extract natural resources from the ground. From a psychological and philosophical analysis of the process of extraction, to a scrutiny of detrimental impact of fossil-fuel capitalism, the three films critically and creatively analyze the aftermath of the extraction of gas, oil, and minerals as well as the waste of energy, labor, and time in the epoch of the Capitalocene.

Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory is an online series of film programs and discussions on e-flux Video & Film, programmed by Lukas Brasiskis.

The films in Part One | Extraction: Environments and Communities will screen for two weeks, from Friday, August 14 through Thursday, August 27, 2020. Subsequent parts will follow bi-weekly, with new films screened every other week.
