In Ingrid Veninger's The Animal Project, a group of struggling, up-and-coming performers gather at a weekly workshop to learn at the feet of Leo (Aaron Poole, The Conspiracy, Copper), an underemployed artist with his own struggles and hang-ups. Starving for inspiration, and eager to showcase their talents to an indifferent city, they decide upon a unique strategy; to fully erase their personal identities and head out on the streets of Toronto to perform random, improvised moments in the real world. The Animal Project is a film about identity and authenticity, but also, the nature of love and artistic collaboration.
