Eve in Sheepland (2018)

   

Filmed on Dan Devine’s sheep farm in 2015 as a comic retelling of the myth of Adam and Eve, their fraught relationship and their oblivious stance toward the animal.

Through a doorway like time travelers Adam and Eve step into a sheep farm, they learn to be human and they die.

I am indebted to Jacque Derrida’s I Am The Animal That Therefore I Am, 2009, that begins at the beginning with Genesis, the curious question of nudity and shame and the question of the animal.

“In principal with the exception of man, no animal has ever thought to dress itself. What does it mean to be seen naked in front of an animal.”
