Competition: Win Lives Beyond Us – Poems and Essays on the Film Reality of Animals

Lives Beyond Us cover

This competition is now CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who entered.

In collaboration with The Cinematic Animal, we’re giving away a copy of the book Lives Beyond Us: Poems and Essays on the Film Reality of Animals.

Edited by Kirsten Irving and Sebastian Manley, the expansive volume features a range of critical and lyrical responses. Ranging and deep, serious and playful, they address the varied roles animals have played throughout the history of film. From the first chronophotographic experiments in capturing animal movement to the CGI facsimiles of the modern era, from Hitchcock to Lynch, cartoons to military metaphors, sharks to protozoa, Lives Beyond Us considers an array of cinematic fauna, along with their relationship to humans – as our companions, our subjects, our alter-egos and our guides.

A: Bad human
