About this Event
Ryan Studio, Hamilton, NY 13346, USA
The Ryan Family Film Series will show A Common Sequence (dir. Mary Helena Clark and Mike Gibisser, 2022, 77 min) followed by an opportunity to meet with Mary Helena Clark in person.
Premiering at the Sundance film festival in 2022, A Common Sequence explores the seemingly foreign worlds intertwined in the modern battlefield of patents, ownership, and colonialism. We delve into labor and science practices, examining who gets to work with the essentials of life — saving animals from extinction, researching medicine, harvesting food, coding the genome — in our modern world controlled by data. The film eloquently guides us through the philosophy of what is “com-mon” to everyone in nature and the complicated pursuits of owning materials of the planet and even our bodies, whether for conservation or for sale.
