“Should an animal or human change to adapt to better fit in or should others accept you for who you are? We wanted to toy with that question and not necessarily come up with a definitive answer.”
Host Alex Paterson chats with Oscar-winning filmmakers, and husband and wife duo, Alison Snowden and David Fine about their new animated short, Animal Behaviour, which profiles five animals who undertake group therapy session to discuss their inner angsts. The film questions whether animals, like humans, should adapt to social norms. It’s been nominated for a 2019 Academy Award and a Canadian Screen Award. Alex reached them in their Vancouver home.
