Animal Condensed>Animal Expanded #1 Jennet Thomas 8 min., 2016, United Kingdom Somewhere between virtual and actual, through the collision of meanings and anti-meanings, a visionary fever dream produces an enigmatic philosophical encounter between two post-anthropological agents. In an attempt to reconcile themselves with some unspecified trauma of mass biotechno violation, they quiz one another on the origins and ontologies of their species. The Pink Egg Jim Trainor 71 min., 2016, USA Luis Buñuel's observation - "You can find all of Shakespeare and de Sade in the lives of insects" - was the inspiration for this experimental horror movie, in which human actors wordlessly enact the life-cycles of wasps and bees. Its purpose is to depict with emotion, humor and unnerving specificity an alternative society that really exists and has nothing to do with human beings. A highly stylized depiction of nature in all her deceitful glory.
