Lupus. An animation about the wolves of urbanism in Colombia

In December 2011, a security guard was killed by a pack of stray dogs prowling in a poor neighborhood, on the Bogota suburbs.

This incident is the starting point of this animation where the painter and filmmaker Carlos Gomez Salamanca makes a crude reflection on the constant efforts of man to force nature into his modernist ambitions.

The natural animal instinct against irrational ambition.
