Animals In the Human World

SYNOPSIS

From 2015 to 2018 filmmaker Caroline Kraus and her dog Henry downsized to a Jeep and traveled throughout the US to explore some of the reasons and ways animals are part of human industry, culture and entertainment. The resulting film is a meditative journey that stimulates questions about how we view and consider other beings, probing ideas through poetic visuals, sounds, encounters and conversations that reflect upon concepts of equality and intrinsic value.

The featurette below presents some of the conversations, ideas and footage that have influenced this film, which will be released in 2020.
