Becoming Animal
비커밍 애니멀
  • International Competition
Synopsis Shot in Grand Teton National Park, this immersive easy film draws together the distinct sensibilities of filmmakers Emma and Peter and philosopher David to encounter the space where humans and animals meet. This is a subversive nature film in which we pique our sense to witness the so-called natural world. Moose clash antlers and a snail’s body becomes a vast landscape while the myriad sensory tools of cinema explore our complicity with this “more-than-human world”.
