Unthinkable Films: Visual Translation Workshops and Preliminary Production Support

Year of Funding: 

“Unthinkable Films” draws together UW faculty members to develop short documentary films that speak and theorize our planet’s cataclysmic, unpredictable, or unprecedented future.  We seek a large scale collaboration award to launch this project with visual translation workshops between June 2020 and winter 2021 in which we learn to turn text-based humanistic scholarship into compelling visual and digital forms.  Funds will also support preliminary work on the pilot film in the series.
