An inspired collaboration between filmmakers Emma Davie (The Oil Machine) and Peter Mettler (The End of Time) and ecologist, philosopher and author David Abram ("The Spell of the Sensuous"), Becoming Animal is an urgent and immersive audiovisual quest, forging a path into the places where humans and other animals meet, where we pry open 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.

"Becoming Animal is like no outdoor documentary you've ever seen. Combining David Abram's eloquence and the stunning cinematography of Emma Davie and Peter Mettler, the film places the viewer under what David would call 'the spell of the sensuous.' I urge everyone to see this film, particularly young people. Their view of nature will never be the same."
