OFFICIAL TEASER
All relationships are a kind of hunt. There is the opinion that men are hunters and women are preys in our chauvinist world. Often this opinion is cultivated by women themselves: for many the position of "conquer me" and "men are obliged" becomes a life credo. However, not all men and women fit into these principles. And this is the main idea of the short film "Natural Selection".

Our short film is based on the story "Cold World" of the modern Russian writer Artyom Golikov, who acted as the co-writer of the script. The film grotesquely describes the world: the relationship is shown as a real men's hunt for women. From persecution and pursuit (datings) to eating (an allegory for sex). Women in this world are divided into two categories: food and men's life support.

The main characters are two "wolves": young one and experienced one. The experienced "wolf" does not even doubt that women are just primitive preys. But the young one wonders if this is so having his first hunt. And what if women are not as primitive as men used to think?

The "Natural selection" is the kind of prologue for a feature-length film.
We believe that this rigorous way of relationships demonstration may help people to reevaluate the stereotypical principles of the chauvinist world.
