For almost fifty years, Donna Haraway scholar, professor, writer has been merrily challenging the colonialist and patriarchal underpinnings of orthodox assumptions in gender, science, and trans-species thought. Taking inspiration from feminism, science fiction, environmentalism, and Marxism, in works such as A Cyborg Manifesto and Primate Visions, she proposes nothing less than new ways of understanding the world and creating the future.
Director Fabrizio Terranova has fashioned an ideal presentation of Haraways history and philosophy. He films her in long takes and spacious frames, granting the audience a full, unfettered perspective on her freewheeling, gesticulating pedagogy. And yet Terranova is too crafty a filmmaker to have made a standard documentary. Throughout, deliberately low-tech green screen and computer graphics effects festoon the screen, subtly manifesting as well as buttressing Haraways ideas. His mischievous intelligence is a counterpart to hers, and the result is a film as playfully provocative as Haraway herself.

Elliptical, self-effacing, and subdued, Fabrizio Terranovas Donna Haraway is no ordinary talking-head documentary. Haraway comes off as energetic, enthusiastic, funny, playful, and an engaging storyteller. Tanner Tafelski, Hyperallergic
