Becoming Animal at Glasgow Film Theatre (with Q&A)

“We are human only in contact, and conviviality, with what is not human.” – David Abram

We are delighted to support the official UK release screening of Becoming Animal at the Glasgow Film Theatre. This new documentary by Emma Davie and Peter Mettler features the environmental philosopher David Abram, who CHE hosted in 2011.

“An intriguing and uniquely constructed exploration of the world we live in. Hypnotic and visceral – highly recommended.”

“New and full of life… A big-screen viewing recommended”
Sight & Sound

Shot in Grand Teton National Park, this immersive essay film draws together the distinct sensibilities of filmmakers Davie and Mettler and author 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.”

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Emma Davie and Svenja Meyerricks from the Centre for Human Ecology.
