Can a city cockroach cheat fate in this hallucinatory, eat-or-be-eaten jungle?

A delightfully bizarre marriage of art and nature filmmaking, Catherine Chalmers’s Safari follows a cockroach’s descent into an unforgiving landscape in which eat or be eaten seems to be the law of the land. Constructed within a studio, the artificial world of Safari features 20 small species magnified to imposing dimensions from uncanny perspectives, including rhinoceros beetles engaging in epic battles, spiders feasting on dismembered prey and peculiar lizards awaiting their next meal.

Director: Catherine Chalmers
