Two wrestlers approach each other to battle for male dominance, but soon the fight descends into something even more animalistic as hypermasculinity clashes with desire.
New animation from Dann Parry, Lock Horns is an animated commentary on hyper-masculinity and aggression shows how what can begin as a display of strength, ‘manliness’ and heterosexuality can quickly blur into sexualisation and homo-erotism – sometimes the very thing it is trying not to be.
