__

Feminist thinker and historian of science Donna Haraway is perhaps best known as the author of two revolutionary works: the essay «A Cyborg Manifesto» and the book «Primate Visions.» Both set out to upend well-established «common sense» categories: breaking down the boundaries among humans, animals, and machines while challenging gender essentialism and questioning the underlying assumptions of humanity’s fascination with primates through a post-colonial lens.

The film «Donna Haraway: Storytelling for Earthly Survival» features Haraway in a playful and engaging exploration of her life, influences, and ideas. the film is structured around a series of discussions held in the California home she helped build by hand, on subjects including the capitalism and the anthropocene (a term she «uses but finds troubling»), science fiction writing as philosophical text, unconventional marital and sexual partnerships, the role of Catholicism in her upbringing, humans and dogs, the suppression of women’s writing, the surprisingly fascinating history of orthodontic aesthetics, and the need for new post-colonial and post-patriarchal narratives.
