Director Statement

A Mouthful of Flesh is an avant garde/surrealist short film that explores themes of isolation, obsession, and risk taking in what the writers/directors explained as a fugue state. This was inspired by entire days stuck in front of their computers, faced with nothing but navigating the vast emptiness of the internet.
