The article features Canadian video artists Kim Kozzi and Dai Skuse. The artists offer a collection of post-millennial video concoctions that talks about supernatural. Their 28-minute film "Red of Tooth and Kaw," has enacted a sky burial with axes, pointy hats, mesmeric, looped music, warlock capes, long walks in the tall grass, cats and poached moments from the classic 1970s zero-population-growth propaganda film "Soylent Green." According to the author, the animals' role in the film is to reconnect people to their own base and to reposition the dialogue as one not exclusively between metaphor-drenched humans.
