Features Haraway in a playful and engaging exploration of her life, influences, and ideas. Best-known for her ground-breaking work on gender, cyborgs, animals and post-colonialism, Haraway is a passionate and discursive storyteller with a curious and nimble mind. Story Telling For Earthly Survival is a clever and insightful glimpse into the thoughts of a major contemporary figure.
I really like watching Donna Haraway. She's great. I did drift off a couple of times though, and the green screen didn't sit well with me, and there are a couple of confusing segments (two minutes of the old internet pre-meme Cows with Guns, for instance). But overall the film pulls through.
Worth a watch if you can find it.
