A subversive nature film. What does it mean to inhabit our animal bodies in this technology-driven age? "We are only human in contact, and conviviality, with that is not human" - David Abram
To celebrate this Summer Solstice, we have now made the film available for you to screen at your local cinema.
An inspired collaboration between filmmakers Emma Davie (I Am Breathing) and Peter Mettler (The End of Time) and radical writer and philosopher 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.
