Extraction: The Raft of the Medusa is cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive redesign of the planet and a dystopic pamphlet on Anthropocene.

Extraction: The Raft of the Medusa portrays a brief moment of euphoria as the occupants on the raft spot a glimpsic illusion for their drift, hoping and praying to be rescued. We can almost hear the hoarse cries in an attempt to draw attention to their desperate plight, mustering their last ounce of strength to the void. This is their last chance of survival.

Extraction: The Raft of the Medusa refers to the colonial paradigm, worldview, and technologies that mark out regions of high biodiversity in order to reduce life to capitalist resource conversion with an enormous environmental and social impact.

The film is an allegory for the state of emergency in environmental policy.
