Parkway 1

In The Jungle, playfully and sorrowfully tells the tale of an unreliable narrator in a self imposed exile. Given a grant to study the equivalent of animal cries in jungle flora our heroine has lived for 1,612 days deep in an unnamed jungle. This jungle serves as an extended metaphor for excessive and continual growth and death, fear and sustenance; a metaphorical space of chaos in which the scientist finds solace and which stands in contrast to the human jungle of ‘civilization’.
 
Equal parts musical, performance piece and poetic lecture, In The Jungle is a 63 minute hybridized essay film written and directed by Stephanie Barber, starring Cricket Arrison and M.C. Schmidt, cinematography by Mathew Robert Thompson and sets designed by Smelling Salt Amusements
