Theodore Hick's and Jason Jackson's second year film.
Our story tells the tale of a young colonial boy and a spiritual Witch Doctor and how through vivid and surreal visions the doctor changes the course of the boy's life out in the African plains.
The boy with a passion for hunting and an unpleasant character, looks up to his father a respected hunter, seen in the painting opening. The Sangoma (witch doctor) is a druid type character caring for and helping animals whenever he can. They meet when the boy having stolen his fathers hunting gear strikes down a young daiker the Sangoma has just healed from other ailments.
Disgusted and enraged by the boys actions the Sangoma sneaks up on the boy while he inspects the striken baby buck and sends him into a trance in which his character is challanged. First the boy is intrigued by his new surroundings a surreal animal graveyard. He aims his rifle at the floating spectres of his four legged prey and trys to shoot, it is then he drops his rifle terrified to find his hands have been replaced by hooves. The visions escalate and he is chased by the sillouette of a hunter, the hunter becoming the prey. The boy then runs into a giant replica of the painting in shot 1, where a wilderbeast stands in his fathers hunting gear aiming his blunderbuss at the boy.
Through these visions the boy is forced to emphasise with the animals he terrorises and learns the error of his ways.
The story ends with the boy having grown up to be a nature loving conservationist with a beautiful wife and many animal friends, explained through a third iteration of the painting on the wall.
