The way one relates to land, water and “resources” is reflected in the way one produces goods, relations, and affinities. Three (or More) Ecologies juxtaposes the highly industrial/technical nature of the destructive fracking industry driving North Dakota’s Bakken shale oil boom on the Ft. Berthhold (Three Affiliated Tribes Reservation), with voices from Jinwar – Village of Free Women, a women’s collective agricultural village project in the autonomous region of Rojava (Northern Syria). The first chapter of this audio-visual research project emphasizes the urgent necessity of redefining value in the face of economic models that are driving the current climate crisis and the ongoing disruption/destruction of ecosystems, with blatant disregard for the embodied knowledge these ecosystems cultivate and nourish. It calls into question capitalism’s unbridled accumulation, fostered by competition, inequality and exploitation, the undergirding of patriarchal society, and comes to a singular conclusion: For the world to live, patriarchy must die.
