Animal Tracks

Canada, 1995 (MIFF 1996, Documentary)

Director: Jeff Winch

Animal Tracks is about the relationships humans have with animals: how we look after them, how we treat them, the way we adopt or dispose of them, and our ongoing fascination with animals.

It takes us on a ride, 'tracking' slowly past cages, enclosures, paddocks and displays. We are the watchers, gazing at the animals who stare back at us. We are the viewers who watch the film. Equally concerned with form and content, it has no dialogue; rather a soundtrack composed of animal noises and hypnotic rhythms. (PT)
