Becoming Animal

Becoming Animal

Documentary, 78 min.


by Peter Mettler, Emma Davie

Switzerland / United Kingdom, Planned for Spring 2018

What is this thing we call “nature” and what informs the way we see it? Together with author and philosopher David Abram, we travel to the Gran Teton Park in Wyoming to explore how our relationship with nature has evolved. Abram’s ideas about how our animal connection has been affected by language and other technologies, interact with our filmic encounter with bison, moose, elks and itinerant tourists.
