The idea that to become real humans it would be necessary an enhancement of our animal side will seem to many a counter-sense and a historical kickback. But it's precisely that apparent conflict that this documentary aims to explore and resolve. Besides the beauty of Grand Teton National Park, and contrarily of what happened so many times in works like this, nature doesn't show up here as a lovely or idyllic place. Without ignoring the difficulties, David Abram, author of the book that borrows the title to this film, and that feed it, argues a direct relation, less mediated, between people, animals and landscape. The directors also tried to incorporate this proposal in the sound and visual works. Maybe for that, this is a film that reclaims to be seen in a big screen inside a theatre room.
