Becoming Animal is a different kind of nature film, tracing how we sense the 'more than human' world and exploring how it also senses us . An immersive audiovisual quest, it traces a journey to the Grand Teton Park in North America with the influential philosopher David Abram (The Spell of the Sensuous) to see how the written word and technology has affected how we see. We pique 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.
