Tribunal for Lake Vättern, part 1, (staging and recording).mp4

A staging and a document of a tribunal to hear the case of Lake Vättern. Involving allegations of i violations of Article 2 in the 2010 Earth Rights Declaration. As part of the project Climate-Just Worldings Lina Persson builds a storyworld, a vision of a different world. The document Tribunal for lake Vättern is a step in developing the jurisprudence for this storyworld. Searching for expressions of non-human perspectives in film, she brought the water from Lake Vättern into the tribunal setting and centered the room and the documentation from the water’s position. With a 360 camera she capturing a sphere with the circle of water at its center, focusing the documentation on the water surface’s reactions to what happens in the room.

The tribunal took place in Sigtuna May 2019. It is realised by the broad movement fighting for this new kind of law that includes nature’s rights. The tribunal was performed with the Global Alliance for Nature’s rights (GAN).

Lina Persson is a researcher at the Film and Media department, Uniarts. She is currently working with her research project Climate-Just Worldings financed by Vetenskapsrådet.
