Civil Twilight at the Vernal Equinox is an experimental speculative fiction film that addresses the complexities of interspecies relationships in an age of mass extinction. It proposes a future in which fuel can be refined from feelings—and in which the highest octane is produced from the feelings we get from experiences we call "cute” (looking at baby animals, interspecies love, children swearing). By suggesting that cuteness could solve the climate crisis and save the world, we draw attention to the way that notions linked to femininity (cute, gossip, vanity, etc) are derided as trivial and divested of their real potential.
