The Toxic Edge at Nunion Docs

Filmmaker Sarah Kanouse and academic Elizabeth A. Povinelli engaged in a conversation with geographer Denisse Andrade about landscapes of toxicity. Toxicity figures in a range of contemporary political, economic, social, and environmental discourses, from the toxic waste of the gulf catastrophe or Fukushima and the toxic assets of financial institutions, to concerns over toxic lifestyles and the biomonitoring of toxic bodies. In “Around Crab Orchard” Sarah Kanouse investigates the deep flows of toxicity in the natural environment and how these shape their materiality and the politics of their existence. See Trailer HERE.
