This documentary features feminist scholar Donna Haraway (b. 1944, Denver) in a playful and engaging exploration of her life, influences and ideas. Haraway is a passionate and discursive storyteller and the film is structured around a series of discussions on subjects including capitalism and the Anthropocene. The film also engages on topics such as science fiction writing as philosophical text, unconventional marital and sexual partnerships, the role of Catholicism in her upbringing, the suppression of women’s writing and the need for new post-colonial and post-patriarchal narratives.



Donna Haraway (b. 1944, Denver) is one of the most important practitioners in a field that ties together science and technology studies, anthropology, and animal studies. In 1970 Haraway received her Ph.D. in Biology at Yale University before beginning a teaching career at the University of Hawaii, Honolulu. Subsequently Haraway moved to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore before joining the History of Consciousness Board at UC Santa Cruz in 1980. Her seminal text The Cyborg Manifesto (1985) has been reprinted and published in numerous publications in North America, Japan and Europe. In addition to a long list of essays, Haraway is also the author of Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene (2016); The Companion Species Manifesto: Dogs, People, and Significant Otherness(2003); Simians, Cyborgs and Women: The Reinvention of Nature (1991); Primate Visions: Gender, Race, and Nature in the World of Modern Science (1989) and Crystals, Fabrics, and Fields: Metaphors that Shape Embryos (1976).
