"WROUGHT" Documentary


"WROUGHT" Documentary

Black background with cut out photos of vegetables, fungus, and leaves. The title in the middle says, "A Biofilm Productions Film: Wrought."

This visual exploration of decay begs questions about our relationships with other species.

WROUGHT begins with that universal moment of disappointment: despite all best efforts, our food has gone bad. But instead of turning away in disgust, WROUGHT zooms in with curiosity through timelapse photography.

WROUGHT explores how we construct categories for the world. It examines the categories of spoil, ferment, compost and rot, coaxing audiences to decompose the binary of human and non-human. We are forged from the relationships that transgress such binaries; we are all, indeed, wrought.

22 minutes.

Directed by Joel Penner. Anna Sigrithur


"Absolutely stunning...In our current plastic-filled and technology-focused world, this resonates particularly strongly and allows us to reconsider the natural steps that are essential to the cycle of life...Highly nourishing food for thought, just don't let it sit too long." Cosmos Magazine
