Theriophobia is defined as a fear of the beast. Naturalist Barry Lopez goes one step further with this definition, describing it as a fear of the beast within as an irrational, violent, insatiable creature. Reflection on childhood memories and fears induce impressions of the filmmaker’s inner beast.
