In dreams, in life, in film - we are, we are, we are.
I was struck during my research on fungi (albeit from an anthropological standpoint) that four of the main themes that emerged started with the term "anthropo-" ie. human. This film is my exploration of these concepts; anthropocentrism, anthropomorphism, anthropology, and anthropocene based on the work of numerous scholars, including my supervisor Michael Hathaway. My hope is that this film can in some way take these anthropological concepts beyond academia, and to be a part of a larger conversation about climate change and our relationships to other species.
