Strange Beasts

Set on the out­skirts of the Bow­land Fells, North York­shire, this film con­tains no dia­logue, but is instead a sen­so­ry explo­ration into the realms of an Eng­lish dairy farm. Paired with the exper­i­men­tal use of sound­scape and con­tact micro­phone record­ings, the camera is a quiet wit­ness as the parlor bus­tles with a sea of pied cows, the land­scape hums with the sound of elec­tric wire and a calf is pulled into exis­tence with the tug of a rope.
