Piscis ludicrous / Transfixed gaze (Lygophilia)
Video essay, 15′ 30”, 2018

Artist Robertina Šebjanič immerses us in the world of the axolotl - a species disappearing in the wild as their natural habitat is being destroyed, while propagated for scientific exploitation of its regenerative abilities.

Given all the scientific merits in the field of regenerative biology and the promise of prolongation of human life, it is almost impossible for humankind to see axolotls as they are – non-human-subjects in the process of inevitable extinction.
The project thus opens the questions: Who observes whom? Who is seen as a monster and who is perceived as an optical illusion?

🦎Axolotls🦎

We can’t have a theme about [Re]generation without mentioning this mascot creature ~ the Axolotl! Used extensively in scientific research due to their superpower ability to regenerate limbs as well as to remain “youthful” their entire lives.
Yet sadly, wild axolotls are also critically endangered - native to only two lakes in Mexico which have been obliterated by urbanisation and water pollution.

🌱wow 🌱 What a dynamic female powerhouse!

Meet women who are leaders in their field, creating long-term tangible changes for the species and communities they work with. Some of them are striking out in new areas that will transform our production systems away from global destruction, and towards regenerative practices instead. Get to know the speakers on topics ranging from why they do what they do to life and work during the pandemic, to their vision of what they want for Planet Earth. Registered attendees can submit questions during the session. Reach out to us after if you want to learn/collaborate/support one of these amazing women!

Mapping community land with drones for the first time.

Collecting snot from migrating humpback whales with drones to monitor their health.

Portable molecular technologies to detect species and pathogens in the field.

The rise of technology is changing the way data is collected and by who. As technologies become more affordable and accessible to scientists and non-scientists alike, we are gaining new insights into our environment and new ways to protect wildlife and community rights.

In this panel moderated by Dr. Vanessa Pirotta (Macquarie University, Aussie FameLab Winner, Top 100 Women of Influence - Australian Financial review), we will have Irendra Radjawali aka Radja (Bonn University) featured in this year's SGEFF EcoShort film Dayaks and Drones, Prof Koh Lian Pin (Conservation Drones; Centre for Nature-based Climate Solutions, National University of Singapore, World Economic Forum Young Global Leader), and Dr. Adeline Seah (SGEFF, Biodiversity Connections, Global Biosummit) sharing their experiences and vision of science democratization and #techforgood.

📣sound on to hear the lyrical voice of the Gibbon !

2020 Film Selection: CAO-VIT GIBBON’S ARK (2019)

❗️Critically Endangered❗️Between China and Vietnam lies the world's largest karst landscape. A mysterious animal lives here: Cao Vit gibbon. Once thought to be extinct by scientists in the '60s, the species was "rediscovered" by conservationists in the early 2000s. Will we lose them again ? Follow this journey and collaboration between Chinese and Vietnamese teams working together to save a species.

🌱Did U know ? 🌱

Gibbons communicate with a wide repertoire of vocalizations, but are best known for their hauntingly beautiful song; males and females sing together in a duet that is unique to each species.💕

This year, the theme focuses on regeneration – a nod to the next big sustainability movement of regenerative agriculture. While current sustainability practices are generally aimed at reducing or reusing what is already in circulation, regenerative agriculture takes it a step further by assuming things are already so damaged that it needs to be actively rebuilt and nurtured back to health. We almost feel the recent pandemic measures have given us the time and space to do just that.

Creativity comes in all sorts of forms, with films being one of them. We believe that the power of film has the ability to educate and advocate for environmental issues by painting a bigger picture of the world through the lenses of creativity.

HKEFF

The Hong Kong Eco Film Festival (HKEFF) launched in 2018 with the mission to create an inspirational open platform bringing together corporates, entrepreneurs, educators, students and NGOs to celebrate and accelerate solutions for our environment. It is a jam-packed programme over 2 days filled with unforgettable experiences; including eco films, insightful speakers, activities & workshops for all ages! In alliance with the Singapore Eco Film Festival (SGEFF), Borneo Eco Film Festival(BEFF), Malaysia Eco Film Festival (KLEFF) and Jakarta Eco Film Festival (JEFF) together we hope to make a regional impact to foster collaboration and ignite a public passion towards protecting our environment!

自2018年開始,電影節作為一個藝術交流平台,旨在透過不同議題的電影、研討會及生態活動,彙集企業、教育工作者、學生和非政府組織,希望能夠產生區域性影響,引起公眾對保護生態環境的關注。
