AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Animal is a dark horror, a minute tale of epic proportions. In a remote town, two sisters hover on the edge of society. Dominated by their destructive mother and muted by the secret of a father not long buried, they begin a relentless quest to prepare for the predators circling outside.

'Through heightened physicality and visceral splendor, Animal explores the circumstance we are born into, the cycle of violence and examines how these deeply imbedded patterns can change or be broken.'
