In The Revolt Against Humanity: Imagining a Future Without Us, Adam Kirsch outlines the problematic ways that humans have separated themselves into an oppositional relationship with nature. With reference to Kirsch's ideas, compare the films Enys Men (Mark Jenkins 2022) and Into Eternity (Michael Madsen 2010) based upon the way they de-center the human, or shift our perspective on humanity's relationship to nature.
The connections you make should be accompanied by specific examples from both films. Any concepts you draw from Kirsch should be given a clear and specific definition, with specific reference to the chapter(s) we've read by Kirsch. If you are quoting or paraphrasing, make sure you provide the author and page number in the form of in-text citation.
If you reference another student's post, be sure that you are adding something new to the conversation and not just reiterating what another student has already said. Keep in mind what we have said in our comments on the past two posts. We will be looking to see you attempting to improve upon prior weaknesses and to develop prior strengths.
