Batbox, take one

Jani Ruscica

Bats’ ability to echolocate reveals the limitations of human sight. As the film about the use of sound as a navigational tool develops, the visual and aural perception of the subject changes. Made in collaboration with the researches in bioacoustics from the University of Bristol.
