Nature can symbolize freedom, which can inspire art. In this case, it was a symbiotic relationship. In the film, after an old man loses his beloved house cat to a mountain lion, he sets off into the brutal and arresting Big Sur wilderness to seek his revenge.
Written and directed by Big Sur filmmaker Michael Harrington and beautifully shot all around Big Sur, the film was included in this past summer’s Big Sur International Short Film Screening Series (as well as the Carmel Film Festival.)
