Field & Screen 2013: Bestiaire

Event: Field & Screen 2013: Bestiaire
Preceded by DonĠt Break Down
Introduced by Matt Meindl

In this stunning visual essay, a tourist-jammed Quebec safari park is the setting for an almost surrealist meditation on the relationship between nature and humanity.

Bestiare is, at its core, a story about looking. Filmmaker Denis C™tŽ eschews the traditional first-person narrative for poetic (and mesmerizingly long) shots of exotic animals both seeing and being seen. A lion attacks its cage. A zebraĠs legs scuffle in a pen. An ostrich gazes into the distance. Through this series of stark tableausÑand scenes both humorous and heartbreakingÑC™tŽ slowly explores the primal human desire to observe our fellow creatures...and how that desire is often at odds with the best interests of the creatures weĠre observing.
