Video Still from Bugs and Beasts Before the Law

Bugs and Beasts Before the Law / Bambitchell / Video Installation / 2019

An experimental film that explores the medieval practice of putting animals on trial. This history of colonial law-making forged political and sometimes profane relationships between humans and animals. Bambitchell's new essayistic work reimagines common perceptions of legal history and, in doing so, produces a world where past and present, fiction and non-fiction, human and animal fuse.
