USA, 2016, 60 min. Director Alan E Franks.

Walking a fine line between the real and the imaginary, culture and conservation collide in this documentary about humans and hippos. Featuring an ensemble of people whose lives are tied to the hippopotamus in some manner, the film explores their relationships with the animal and with each other, while raising larger questions about how we conceptualize, represent, and interact with nature.
