Berlin’s KW Institute for Contemporary Art is hosting a four-film programme exploring forms of interaction between human and nonhuman creates titled Les Bêtes Sauvages and taking place on Wednesday, October 28.
The event falls within KW’s Welcome to the Jungle series and explores the “utopian and dystopian states in which humans and animals meet…turning the spectator into witnesses of the intensification of all sorts of gestures”.
The four films within the programme include French director Cécile Fontaine‘s 1996 film Safari Land, using safari footage; Éléonore Saintagnan and Grégoire Motte‘s 2015 three-episode film Les Bêtes Sauvages; Apichatpong Weerasethakul‘s search for the mythical Nok Phii bird in the 2008 film Vampire; and Cooper Battersby and Emily Vey Duke‘s 2011 love story between a primatologist and a female bonobo ape, Lesser Apes.
