The Black FOX

Shavi Mela

The Arctic fox, with prey in its teeth, flees from attacking red foxes, but loses something important in the process. The fox is bleeding, but continues its trek through the arctic desert and gets transformed during this journey.

Starving red foxes chase an arctic white fox. The white fox, who holds a prey in its teeth, escapes the red foxes and jumps in the fissure between rocks. The white fox continues trekking through the arctic desert. It leaves trails of blood on snow. Snowy wind gradually erases its traces. The foxes body blends in with the snowy landscape and sometimes gets lost in whiteness. The fox falls in the deep snow and gets stuck. The instinct of self-preservation forces it to get out and continue on its journey. The fox climbs icy rocks with great difficulty and crosses a frozen bay. It still holds its prey – a white hare in its teeth. Ice melts. The foxes body is being transformed – it changes its fur which becomes darker. Three black paws of the fox are seen on the snow. Its blackened mouth contrasts with its white teeth and white hare. The hare is still alive. The black fox disappears beyond a snowy hill, under the rays of the setting sun. In the fissure, in the teeth of the trap the fox
