Wildlife is a furious manifesto about fiction. Using an entirely new and original fictional text as a source for this polemic, the crutches of modern storytelling, production, writing, and directing are displayed and deconstructed to reveal why we watch what we do - romantic comedies, road trip films, teen horror genre films, premium television series, digital shorts, and even animated GIFs. Written by Jean-Paul Tremblay

Plot Summary | Add Synopsis
