Ecoficctions is part of the research & knowledge transfer programme Entreteixides, a collaboration between the Can Felipa Civic Centre, Hangar and La Escocesa.

Decades of science fiction cinema have formed an archive of images of possible futures that forge the collective imagination. In view of this, we ask ourselves: how does science fiction cinema deal with environmental conflicts? What eco-social futures are possible according to this imaginary? To what extent are the futures that are being proposed to us conditioned by the current model of social organization and the idea of progress of modernity? Why is it so difficult to think about non-apocalyptic futures? Can we imagine alternative scenarios to those proposed?

This workshop is structured in three parts, with a total of 5 sessions of 3 h each.

I: The Future According to Eco-Science Fiction Cinema

Based on the viewing of fragments of films, we will review how ecological conflicts have been treated in science fiction cinema, what or who it points to as responsible and what kind of solutions are being considered. We will reconstruct the imaginary of the future that science fiction cinema offers us, and we will analyze the tools it uses for this.

II:Imagining alternative futures and realities

Through debate and with the help of specific texts, we will stress the limits of the traditional paradigm that conditions the imaginary of the possible. Using resources from science fiction and speculative narratives we will build a collection of alternative animated imaginaries.

III: Presentation of the ecofictions

On January 25 from 6 p.m. , We will collectively share the animated eco-fictions created during the workshop.
