Becoming Animal is an alternative nature documentary collaboration between Scotland’s Emma Davie and Canadian/Swiss filmmaker Peter Mettler, who have assembled astonishing footage shot in Grand Teton National Park, U.S. They combine this with the philosophical insight of writer David Abram to reflect on the spaces in which humans and animals meet. The result is a cinematically immersive, audiovisual experience that reveals to us just how the written word and technology have affected how we witness the natural world.
“Becoming Animal is a wholly unique cinema experience, astonishing in its beauty and satisfying in the way it asks us to see the world differently.” – Screen Machine team.
This screening is part of Films We Love.
In September 2018 we launched Films We Love as
a way of showcasing our commitment to broadening the Screen Machine’s programme, focusing first on World Cinema. Now, our
first Films We Love season in 2019 brings four new
documentaries to a range of locations on our touring route. Each documentary is connected to Scotland in some way, whether that’s where it was produced, the subject of the film, or the
filmmakers themselves. We’ve chosen these films for the considered and inquisitive ways they present their subjects, whether they’re revealing a very Scottish sense of solidarity, or demonstrating
Scotland’s huge cultural impact around the world. We hope you’ll discover a story you connect with as much as we have.
