Woodchuck (2009) DVD_NTSC, color, 7 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

This video shows a dying woodchuck in a field. He/she has been partially run over by a tractor. The woodchuck is paralyzed from the waist down, and from the waist up is pure fear, vulnerability, and viciousness. An animal, motivated usually by a quest for food and shelter has been reduced to pure emotions and a raw desire to live. Edited only lightly, the confrontation between me(behind the camera) and my dog and the animal is present as it happened.
