BLACK ECOLOGY
Davi Pontes

Black Ecology is an experimental film, an excavation of scientific images (oceanographic archive), and reimagined ocean landscapes generated by software images. These fragments of moving images guide us to think about the racial dimension of extractivist relations. They go beyond a place-based configuration of environmental racism as a spatial organization of exposure to environmental harm. Instead, they mobilize us to think about how advances in science continue to uncover ideas of racial extraction that have no end.

Inspired by philosopher Denise Ferreira da Silva, the project is an experiment in thinking and existing within Black ethics, attempting to bring a Black timeline, and a space for Black ecology to the study of contemporary capitalism. It does so by looking at zones ignored by the “Anthropocene” concept, including specific power relations and social inequalities tied to extractive action and environmental transformation in the Latin American context.
