CineMarfa 2018

The theme of this year’s program takes its name from one of our featured films: STORYTELLING FOR EARTHLY SURVIVAL. Fabrizio Terranova’s newest film is a portrait of feminist cultural theorist Donna Haraway, whose influential ideas about gender, technology, ecology, and inter-species relations will resonate throughout the festival. Ecosexual activists Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens will appear in person for the Texas Premiere of their new feature WATER MAKES US WET, Frederick Wiseman’s classic 1974 documentary PRIMATE will be presented by Light Industry’s Thomas Beard, and experimental ethnographer Sky Hopinka will screen a selection of his short films exploring the languages and landscapes of indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest. Marfa resident David Fenster will also be present to share his newest feature OPUNTIA, an essayistic documentary that engages the myth of Cabeza De Vaca. Along with OPUNTIA, Travis Walker's short WE DANCED WITH THE DEVIL will screen.
