Is it possible to talk with animals? Following this question, the filmmaker explores different forms of animal communication. She wants to calm down her excited dog Bina. The journey leads her from Switzerland to England and to Arizona. She meets an animal communicator, two animal teachers, a biologist, an animal therapist, and the founder of „The Trust Technique“. On eye level with dogs, horses, cats, dolphins and a goat she uncovers their sensitive way of perceiving and communicating. Getting familiar with their language and training with her dog she learns more than she could have wished for.
“Being with Animals” is shown in Swiss cinemas end of 2018.
