Before completing his “Animal Trilogy” with Ape (2012)—which won Best New Director and Best First Feature Special Mention at the 2012 Locarno Film Festival—and the newly premiered Buzzard (which was recently picked up for distribution by Oscilloscope Laboratories), Michigan-born filmmaker Joel Potrykus kicked off his series with a short work shot on Super 8 film called Coyote (2010). Featuring Joshua Burge (the star of each film in Potrykus’ bestial triumvirate) as a drug-addicted drifter, the movie follows him through a collage of bizarre episodes involving music, mysterious bodies, both heroin and crack, dancing, and squatting—until eventually reaching a transformative climax that vaguely contextualizes what came before while simultaneously raising a whole slew of questions.
