Sundog lives in the Sonoran Desert on the Mexican border. He lives off anything that nature gives him, be it wild boar or the psychedelic poison of a toad. But the border patrol agents are threatening the peace in Sundog’s desert kingdom, which the armed recluse is prepared to defend.

Our take

A unique portrait of a beguiling recluse, this hybrid documentary courageously confronts the harmful forces of state surveillance and ecological intervention. Featuring a stunningly immersive soundscape, A Shape of Things to Come explores the sacred bond between human beings and their environment.
