Like the vivid out-of-body experience of a fever, you are pulled into a world of heightened senses, where the boundaries between what is natural and what is synthetic are blurred. There are parrots and penguins and pink flamingos here, but few humans; yet signs of their presence are everywhere.

Finn, born 1995, UK, is a filmmaker whose work explores the interaction of human and nonhuman animals in a world of increasingly manufactured landscapes. Having a background in painting and zoology, he uses these fields of knowledge to speculate upon what this world is. He uses a documentative approach in filming, with a heavy reliance on field recording – later weaving in a narrative through editing.
