Becoming Animal

An inspired collaboration between filmmakers Emma Davie (The Oil Machine) and Peter Mettler (The End of Time) and the influential writer and geophilosopher David Abram ("The Spell of the Sensuous"), BECOMING ANIMAL is an urgent and immersive audiovisual quest, forging a path into the places where humans and other animals meet, where we pry open our senses to witness the so-called natural world—which in turn witnesses us, prompting us to reflect on the very essence of what it means to inhabit our animal bodies.

Shot in and around Grand Teton National Park, with its dizzying diversity of wildlife, trails of curious humans in RVs and billion-year-old geology, the film is a geyser of provocative ideas and heightened sensations related to the sublime circuitry that connects us to our ever-shifting surroundings. Driven by wonder, curiosity and a desire for balance between ecological and technological imperatives, BECOMING ANIMAL is an invitation to explore our relationship with this "more than human" world and recognize it for what it is: an exquisitely intricate system in which everything is alive and expressive, humans, animals and landscapes are inextricably interdependent, and there is no such thing as empty space.

"Becoming Animal is a nature documentary that transcends its geographical location and challenges us to question and contemplate our own existence alongside the wildlife and nature surrounding us." Ezelle Alblas, The Upcoming
