When stags are kept in captivity the borderline between autonomy and servitude runs through every single individual animal. The relationship between man’s claim to power and the authentic elegance of the wild beast must be continuously rebalanced. With “Pulse”, Danish filmmaker Robin Petré has produced an entrancingly beautiful work and an astute reflection on the history and present state of this kind of animal husbandry.
