We were engulfed into this process from April to December 2020, with varying intensities. There were months of only a few hours a day, and there were months - in late autumn - with work from morning to evening. This intensity has been transformed into a language to tell of these experiences: of the day-to-day work of directing, illustrating, animating, adding sound and depth to a film that tries to speak about and with non-human animals.
