Short Film Programs : Cryptozoologie

CryptozoologieCryptozoology is a science defined as “the search for animals that fall outside of taxonomic records due to a lack of empirical evidence, but for which anecdotal evidence exists in the form of myths, legends, or undocumented sightings.” While it’s regarded with suspicion by the mainstream scientific community, this discipline nonetheless boasts followers the world over. Presented back to back, Jay Delaney’s NOT YOUR TYPICAL BIGFOOT MOVIE and Nicolas Renaud’s LA BĘTE DU LAC offer complementary glances into this fascinating phenomenon. Rather than pursue yet another pointless monster hunt, the two filmmakers direct their cameras instead at the ordinary folks who, regardless of their rational character, are convinced they’ve seen the impossible.
