LUMA Arles is organizing a series of summer outdoor screenings. Each series will include three films over a three-day period. Films have been specifically selected for their focus on the relationship between humans and non-humans, interspecies relations, mythologies and the natural world.  To accompany each screening LUMA will invite filmmakers and academics who will discuss the ideas presented on screen, in an attempt to re-evaluate and share the content and context of the films.


Tournés en Amérique du Sud, en Asie du Sud-Est ou en Afrique centrale, les trois films qui composent ce programme multiplient les manières de voir et de ressentir la forêt. À la fois lieu de vie, ressource économique de subsistance ou d’exploitation industrielle, territoire des mythes, refuge protecteur, il s’agit d’un monde multiple habité par les humains et les non-humains. À chaque fois de manière singulière, la forêt existe dans ces films comme un espace-temps traversé par de multiples réalités.

Screening of a movie by Apichatpong Weerasethakul


One of the foundations of agricultural business has been to transform the relationship between humans and animal species into a purely utilitarian transaction for the production of food. Yet in the history of farming, the domestication of certain animal species and the change in dietary habits — for example between humans and cows — were linked by affective bonds as well as cognitive connections. In many cultures, cows constituted a source of financial wealth, or embodied the social status of farmers. This series investigates the co-existence and interdependent relationships between humans and cattle, one of the largest domesticated animal species.
