Wildlife

UK, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Fiction)

Director: Kate de Pury

A short film about love, Wildlife is a journey into dream territory, mixing Celtic mythology, Shanghai pop, and modern mysticism. Drama and dance combine in this poignant story about a young man who loves and loses. It is a lyrical, melancholy gem.
