The Black River of Herself

Patrick Hough

  • Screening & Talk

Event overview

Filmmaker and artist Patrick Hough shows fragments from The Black River of Herself and discusses the research involved in the production.

The film brings to life a fictional Irish Bog Body – an ancient corpse naturally preserved over thousands of years in Ireland’s peat bog lands. Invariably discovered through the process of industrial peat extraction, these bodies become an evocative lens through which to explore our current era of human-induced planetary change.
