A Stray(37:00,USA, MFF 2014)
Vicious compulsions consume a domesticated, single father when his home and child fall victim to the aggression of an elusive, wild animal.
A Stray is a dramatic character study centered on the destabilizing properties of anger and the role that violence plays when self-control disappears. Bordering on the surreal, this story a blend of horror and drama compares a rigid, domesticated lifestyle to brutal animalistic behavior. Focusing a macro lens on these two diametrically opposite behaviors finds they may coexist within a person and struggle for dominance.
