Studies on the Ecology of Drama is a four-screen installation by renowned Finnish filmmaker and artist Eija-Liisa Ahtila.

In the Finnish countryside, we meet a juniper tree, a common swift, a butterfly and a group of acrobats, as well as a ‘human actor’ who guides us through a series of thoughtful yet playful visual exercises. The work invites us to notice how cinema reconstructs our relationship to nature, and investigates the experience of non-human beings in this time of ecological crisis.
