{ adaptation }


Colloquially, adaptation refers to a process of individual or group acclimatization to changes and developments in their environment, prioritizing attitudes and behaviors that serve them well. Successful adaptation results in the state of being well-adjusted and thus experiencing minimal friction with the dominant discourse.
In the context of movies, adaptation refers to the process of transferring an existing story to the medium of film – with varying degrees of interpretation, omission, and interpolation. What kind of political potential does the way we tell and retell stories have? What does it mean to be a site of adaptation for someone else’s stories?
