In this handmade collaboration, a shy wolf tries to befriend a group of hip, party-loving bunnies but finds her body is in revolt.
The Itching is a 2016 clay animation film short, written and directed by Dianne Bellino and animated by Adam Davies.
The film follows a shy wolf who attends a dance party thrown by a group of hip, freewheeling bunnies. Though the wolf longs to connect with the exotic strangers, anxiety overwhelms her, and she descends into obsessive itching.
An intensely visceral film, warm-hearted and disturbing, The Itching investigates our primal longing for connection and reveals the vulnerability, anxiety, and ambivalence embedded there.
