Animal Cinema

European Premiere at 35° Torino Film Festival – TFFdoc

On Friday 24th November, 4.45pm Cinema Massimo

TFFdoc/non umano creates a space about animals, at a time when photos of kittens and other animals abound on Facebook: a kind of animal porn which blinds us to the animality of animals, and of humans.

Animal Cinema, directed by Emilio Vavarella (USA/Italy, 2017, DCP, 12’), is composed of fragments of videos shot by animals equipped with a video camera between their paws (or tusks). It is an investigation into non-anthropocentric audiovisual experiences and into the complicated assemblage of humans, animals and technologies.
