Panel 23b - Disappearing world reloaded: a proposition to collaborate on geopoetic films of the “terrestrial”

Convenors: Blake P Kendall (Freie Universitat Berlin HKMW), Pavel Borecký (University of Bern)

Short abstract: In this panel we explore the promise of geopoetics in the realm of visual anthropology and subsequently aim to instigate the formation of a new collaboration / creative collective. How do we create geopoetic films today?

Episode 2 : ¿Y si los árboles pudieran hablar? (What if trees could talk?)

NB : This session will be bi-lingual, with dialogue facilitated in English and Spanish and beyond.
