Birmingham Critical Film Forum launches with ‘Earthly Bodies’

Birmingham Critical Film Forum presents:

Earthly Bodies

Eastside Projects, Thursday 14 April, 6.30pm


Earthly Bodies is a screening of films by artists exploring feminist, embodied relations to the non-human, curated by Birmingham-based curator Jessica Piette.

The screening will centre feminist, multi-vocal and ecological film-making practices, showing four short artist films that explore varied material entanglements with the non-human. Themes explored in the films include the colonial commodification of nature, nature as a site for connecting with others and tracing genealogy, embodied and queer relationships to the non-human.

The programme takes place on Thursday 14 April, 6.30pm, at Eastside Projects and will include work by Bryony Gillard, Philippa Ndisi-Herrmann, Shireen Seno, and Linda Stupart.

This free event is the first part of the Birmingham Critical Film Forum, initiated by Seán Elder, a series supported by the Stuart Croft Foundation Curation Award to develop artists’ moving image in the West Midlands.
