One of Europe’s largest deer farms lies in Hungary and houses 1,500 strong red deer. The animals are essentially still wild. The first deer were caught in the forest only 25 years ago, and the handling of them becomes a physical conflict between man and animal. The deer farm is in itself a rich microcosm containing multifaceted contradictions. Pulse looks at human-animal relations and the imperialist way we deal with nature. This creative documentary plays on the line between reality and dreamy, sensorial experience while interweaving present day footage with archive photographs from the beginning of deer Hungarian farming in the 1980s.
