Training

A hunting sight-hound is followed by a camera that imitates all his moves while roaming over the Sussex countryside: the pursuing camera tries to catch up when the dog sprints, stops when he stops and dodge trees and obstacles in an attempt at reversing the usual sense of control between dog and trainer. At a point, the dog finally takes control of the point of view, as the camera is attached to his side, and the whole scene becomes chaotic and irrational. The spectator perceives a physical sense of unbalance and loss of control just before being confronted by the animal’s stare.
