Donna Harawai: Story Telling for Earthly Survival

Donna Haraway (Denver, 1944) is a thinker and researcher, a feminist and a science-fiction enthusiast. Her fame exploded in the Eighties when her studies on identity, gender, and technology marked the scientific and philosophical landscape, opening the door to a shocking and joyous feminism. The film is a cinematographic portrait of the time shared between the Italian-Belgian director Fabrizio Terranova and Donna Haraway in her home in California. A time full of words and suggestions in which the philosopher-scientist, author of the famous essay "A Cyborg Manifesto", speaks in her own environment, with alternating discussions and images that highlight her overwhelming, playful and speculative sensibility. This is a rare portrait of an exceptional thinker who is remarkably comprehensible. She talks about intimacy, family constellations, inner states, which as she says: “Everything is political and everything is a collective affair.”
