May the Fox Take You is guided by a text assembled from idioms, curses and blessings loosely translated from a language that is almost extinct. The film travels through a field of mustard, within the cavities and digestive fluids of carnivorous plants, to a moth that looks like twin snakes nodding in the wind. A robot dog is being kicked, a dancer is rehearsing a choreography taken from a pogo dance tutorial.
The soundscape is composed of recorded drum beats which are electronically rearranged, overlaid with strings formed by machine learning models.
