故事梗概 Synopsis


Queerness was and sometimes still is considered “un-natural.” Queer gardening challenges this “un-naturalness” by creating queer-feminist ecologies. Our documentary examines what horticultures look like when binaries such as nature/culture, human/more-than-human and body/environment are deconstructed in creative ways. Ella von der Haide collected 18 interviews with LGBTQIA*-gardeners about their relationships with plants and the land.

导演介绍 Director’s Biography


Ella von der Haide is a passionate filmmaker and gardener from Germany. After her Dipl.-Ing. degree for Urban and Regional Planning, she went several times to USA, Canada and around the globe as a community gardener/filmmaker/gardener. Since 2004 she works as a media artist. Her many researches, lectureships, documentaries, books and stage plays evolve around the topics of feminism, ecology, decolonialism, LGBTQ+ and socio-ecological activisms. Her latest documentary series give a voice to her hope that: “another world is plantable!“ (also the name of her production company and fimseries).

导演阐述 Director’s Statement


This is the 6th film in my series of films about community and urban gardening around the world with the title “Another world is plantable!”, which I filmed between 2003 and 2022. It is the most intimate one of my films since it shows the thoughts and harts of gardeners that are living on the fringes of society.
