Part Two | War Machines and Environmental Memories

Part Two | War Machines and Environmental Memories

The films presented in Part Two of the series Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory deconstruct the idea of the war machine and its infrastructures, focusing on the savage effect military ambitions have exerted on the environment. Erasing the boundaries between past and present, reality and dreams, Jorge Jácome’s Flores (2017), Beatriz Santiago Muñoz’s Other Uses (2014), Sasha Litvintseva and Daniel Mann’s Salarium (2017), and Emilija Škarnulytė’s Sirenomelia (2018) critically examine entanglements of military and natural forces, proposing the war machine as a potential site of environmental memory.

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 Two | War Machines and Environmental Memories will screen for two weeks from Friday, August 28 through Thursday, September 10, 2020. Subsequent parts will follow bi-weekly, with new films screened every other Sunday.
