CiTiZEN KiNO is a series of “expanded cinema” events, a new platform to engage the public in a crucial exchange of news, views and critical analysis as a means to collectively navigate our turbulent times.
In this episode we collect film ( excerpts ) + media to explore the situations arising in the accelerating conflicts between communities fighting for their rights to an inhabitable environment ( i.e clean water ) and the predatory neoliberal ideologies which now threaten to drive an all-devouring corporate-state toward planetary ecocide !
Turtle Island is a pre-colonial name for the “North American” territories used by a number of indigenous tribes for centuries. Today, with the struggles against the fossil fuel industries in Dakota and everywhere else, it is used to invoke the spirit, wisdom and strategies of cultures which still embrace an essential code of social conduct / organisation: to protect and defend our shared earth.
Musings… on the theme…
” Back To Our Essential Future “ - On Indigenous Cultures Now
to be cont.
We may not have time to complete our article before the actual event on April 20th. Though following the participation of the public, we can then attempt a mix of perspectives on what we have put on the table to analyze… In the meantime, here’s a list of resources that have helped shape this episode:
- “The New Climate” by Bruno Latour
- Boaventura de Sousa Santos
speaking in April at HKW’s ” The Time Of Monsters / What Comes After Nations ?” … the archive video:
- George Monbiot on Neoliberlism ( defined ) for Verso :
