Information

-Synopsis

Animals and Other People introduce viewers to Vienna's animal shelter and its inhabitants. The encounters between human and animal and the individual stories and peculiarities are affectionate, sometimes sad, and then again, strange. A tender gaze at the nature of the animals and a critical look at human irresponsibility.

-Program Note

The film starts off with images of cats and dogs being transported somewhere. Soaked in water, they look somewhat anxious and remain in awkward positions. The grim-faced animals seem like lost children who have discovered the dark side of the world. Vienna’s animal shelter offers food and medical attention to animals in need of protection. Animals like cats, rabbits and snakes that got hurt because of people’s carelessness arrive one after another. The animal shelter is a safe place but it can’t be an eternal paradise. The space is too limited to accommodate all the animals that arrive there, and some of them even die before anything can be done to help them. The camera carefully chooses an approach depending on each subject’s conditions. It is cautious around wounded animals and takes bold steps towards animals that can be observed at a close distance. The animals are not the only subjects for the camera. In addition to the shelter employees who look after its inhabitants, people frequently visit for matters regarding either adoption or dissolution of adoption. Watching them, we cannot help but raise questions about the way people possess animals of their choice in order to fulfil their selfish needs. We’re led to consider whether the ownership of animals can be justified. The film ends with an image completely different from its opening scene. A shelter employee takes a cured crow to an open field and lets it go. The bird hops about in the field, and that’s when the film ends. It’s left to the crow whether or not it starts fluttering its wings.(LEE Yong Cheol)
