A cruise ship during the Brexit referendum. A colony of birds unwittingly killing the forest they call home. A world in a pandemic. Nothing is a closed system. In moving through these three ecologies the film questions what old images can mean after a rupture and offers a space of mourning.
Sasha Litvintseva is an artist filmmaker and writer researcher, whose work is situated on the uncertain thresholds of the perceptible and the communicable, organism and environment, and entropy and quantification; at the intersection of media, ecology and the history of science. Her work has been exhibited worldwide including solo presentations at Institute of Contemporary Art in London; Berlinische Galerie; Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago; and screenings including the Berlin, Rotterdam, Courtisane, Cinéma du Réel, RIDM, Ann Arbor and Alchemy film festivals.
