“With dark ecology, we can explore all kinds of art forms as ecological” – Timothy Morton, The Ecological Thought



Inspired by Timothy Morton’s concept of “dark ecology”, this session attempts to re-define what an ecological film looks like. In his book The Ecological Thought, Morton encourages us to consider ecology beyond global warming, recycling, and solar power, but rather as something that ought to be understood as an entire framework of thought that impacts our way of being in the world. Dark ecology asks us to consider how nature is connected to negativity and irony, ugliness and horror, race, class, gender, capitalism, and coexistence.

The films in this session provide a counter to the traditional aesthetic form of an ecological film. They ask us to consider what a film might say about the environment even if no trees or mountains appear in it. Most importantly, these films push us to think about the function that ecological art serves in the midst of a global climate crisis.
