    Denis CÔtÉ in conversation with Dennis Lim following the screening.

    Bestiaire is an avant-garde nature documentary that playfully examines the ways in which humans and animals study one another. Unfolding with skill, a calculated pace and a wry sense of wit, the scenarios in Denis Côté’s work break from usual narrative conventions in both fiction and documentary. In this film, the director silently observes animals grazing in a field, their expressions blank. The work subverts both trending anthropomorphism in the digital landscape, and the conventions of observational documentaries.
