      Italian Ecocinema Beyond the Human
Entangled in the hybrid fields of ecomedia studies and material ecocriticism, Elena Past examines five Italian films shot on location and ponders the complex relationships that the production crews developed with the filming locations and the nonhuman cast members She uses these films Red Desert 1964 , The Winds Blows Round 2005 , Gomorrah 2008 , Le quattro volte 2010 , and Return to the Aeolian Islands 2010 as case studies to explore pressing environmental questions such as cinema s dependence on hydrocarbons, the toxic waste crisis in the region of Campania, and our reliance on the nonhuman world Dynamic and unexpected actors emerge as the subjects of each chapter playful goats, erupting volcanoes, airborne dust particles, fluid petroleum, and even the sound of silence Based on interviews with crew members and close readings of the films themselves, Italian Ecocinema Beyond the Human theorizes how filmmaking practice from sound recording to location scouting to managing a production helps uncover cinema s ecological footprint and its potential to open new perspectives on the nonhuman world.
