Sasquatch Birth Journal: Filed under Bizarre

Posted by: Guy Edwards on February 16th, 2011

As many of you know Christopher Munch’s movie Letters from the Big Man premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Oddly enough there was another Sasquatch film that premiered at Sundance this year. It was titled Sasquatch Birth Journal 2.

The only background information we could get is directly from their YouTube page in the form of a programmers note.

Austin-based filmmaking duo/brothers David and Nathan Zellner have had a whopping five short films at the Sundance Film Festival (six films total, including their feature “Goliath”). Their latest short film “Sasquatch Birth Journal 2” ventures into a brand of ethnographic filmmaking that only the Zellners can devise, providing “an unprecedented peek at the mysteries of nature.” Sasquatch fanatics since they were children, the Zellner brothers think of the sasquatch as a friend but also acknowledge their “unhealthy, unrealistic desire to pet and cuddle wild animals.” “Sasquatch Birth Journal 2” is a companion piece to “Sasquatch Birth Journal 1,” described by the Zellners as a “yet to be completed twenty-four minute fully-immersive installation on a similar theme.”

    Interesting take on an oft-ignored but, obviously, vital segment of Sasquatch behavior.

    However, other than making for a good camera shot, I question the rationale behind placing “Patty” in a tree? The (admittedly) little I’ve read regarding gorilla and chimp births leads me to believe it usually takes place on the ground – and at night…

    I also wonder if any thought was given as to whether or not the birthing mother would have any attendants, i.e., related females, present?

    In any case, definitely an original and thought-provoking piece of cinema!

    That’s hilarious! I guess there is no such thing as shaken baby syndrome among Sasquatch. I find it really funny that they thank all of these different organizations that probably don’t want their name associated with this project. Not only that but they thank the Western Canadian Sasquatch Research Organization and it doesn’t even exist anymore…? Weird…

    As they would say here in the southern Indiana, Them boys ain’t right!!

    Regarding my previous post: I suppose I should’ve checked-out the Sasquatch “factoids” at…

    While they explain both the tree and solitary nature of the birth, their treatment of the matter seems somewhat arbitrary and contrived – or tongue-in-cheek – take your pick.

    Therefore, IMHO, at least as they relate to any serious discussion of Sasquatch birth, I think my earlier questions remain valid.

    The costume could be better around the lower legs and a few other places, but as to the birthing preferences, who can say. I am not dissuaded by arguments that compare Bigfoot to other great apes (on the ground and at night) as it’s just as likely they’re far more closely related to human ancestors based on their presumed bipedality and other features consistently reported. As for damage due to the fall, a behavior such as displayed here would alleviate the doctor’s natal slap traditionally performed to insure that newborns will take that first breath.

    I can’t believe I just watched this.

    Well there’s 4 mins 24 seconds I’ll never get back.
