About the Filmmakers
Lokchi Lam is a Toronto resident and doc maker who loves to chew on paradigmatic ideas about power and society through both observational mode and deep-dive systemic and historical research. Their previous independent short works include What Socrates Thought (2017) and A Day in the Life of Everett (2018). In both, Lokchi as director-camera-editor wonders about the stories people tell themselves about the animals they wield power over.
