One night only!

Journey into the natural world in a way you never have before in this unforgettable big screen sensory experience. Acclaimed filmmakers Peter Mettler (Gambling, Gods and LSD) and Emma Davie (I Am Breathing) team up with ecological philosopher David Abram for a wholly immersive audio-visual quest through the intricate wildlife of the Grand Teton National Park. Through state-of-the-art camera techniques and mesmerizing shots of landscapes, plants, insects, and animals, Becoming Animal shifts our perspective of the world around us and its inextricably interconnected parts. Think Planet Earth, but in hyper-drive.

Co-director Peter Mettler will join us for a live post-screening Q&A.
