Kathy High in person!

Animal Attraction is a documentary about the relationship between people and animals, the way we project our hopes and desires onto our pets and ascribe human qualities and attributes to their gestures.  Frustrated by the obnoxious behavior of her cat, Ernie, the video maker contacts Spring Farm CARES, an animal sanctuary in upstate New York, where an “interspecies telepathic communicator” teaches her to follow Ernie’s instructions. High will also show works in progress, which also look at telepathy, the nature of becoming another life and entering another self and the ways to mess with transgenic beings.  Presented in conjunction with the Video Data Bank (VDB). 2001, Kathy High, USA, 59 min, video.
