Shot in Grand Teton National Park, this immersive essay film draws together the distinct sensibilities of filmmakers Emma Davie and Peter Mettler and philosopher David Abram to encounter the spaces where humans and animals meet. A subversive nature film in which we pique our senses to witness the so-called natural world-which in turn witnesses us. 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.”
