The Wound and the Gift (2014)
1h 20min · Documentary, Animation, Family · 30 September 2014
The Gift is a feature-length film exploring a major transformation in peoples' relationships with animals. Humans, who have long considered animals inferior, are increasingly recognizing them as emotional equals, as creatures endowed with individual spirits and personalities. The Gift will reveal how our growing awareness of the gift of the animal spirit is inspiring our relationship to animals, through portraits of the animal 'rescue' movement and incorporating an ancient fable about a wounded crane, rescued by peasants, who repays them with a miraculous gift. The film will pay special attention to the animals' perspective through the inventive use of Super Slow Motion using the latest technological developments.
