Kendra McLaughlin is a filmmaker, artist and doctoral student in Film and Visual Studies. Her research explores how moving image praxis, care theory, and critical ecological thought re-signify contemporary relational ethics. Her film/video work has shown internationally (Centre Pompidou, Sarajevo Film Festival, Ashkal Alwan/aashra…), and often retraces how memory, attachment and trauma inform relationships to land. She was previously a resident at Le Fresnoy, France’s national contemporary arts studio, and a participant in Bruno Latour's School of Political Arts (SPEAP). She received a master’s in Human Rights from Sciences Po as a Tower fellow; and a bachelor’s in Visual and Environmental Studies from Harvard as a UWC Davis scholar.
