Isabelle Stengers : Fabriquer de l'espoir au bord du gouffre

⁄ 76' ⁄ ST-OND: EN-NL

Fabrizio Terranova, Belgique - België 2023

In a recording studio actor Denis Lavant sits down in front of a desk, facing the microphone. In his enveloping voice, he begins to read a text by Henry David Thoreau, the 19th-century American philosopher and poet who originated the principle of “civil disobedience” and is now considered a precursor of the ecological movement (Je suis parti dans les bois). Translated all over the world, the titles of the books of Belgian philosopher Isabelle Stengers speak volumes about her thinking: Capitalist Sorcery: Breaking the Spell, In Catastrophic Times: Resisting the Coming Barbarism, The End of Certainty: Time, Chaos and the New Laws of Nature. While denouncing socio-economic inequalities, Isabelle Stengers encourages us to invent a new way of living in the world and to build hope together on the brink of the abyss (Isabelle Stengers : Fabriquer de l'espoir au bord du gouffre).

In the presence of the filmmakers.
