Casting a Butcher

At night, in an old kitchen somewhere in the countryside, four young women work on and recite a text for a casting to each other. The roles seem to mix. After a while, some of them disappear to make room for older men who talk, laugh, act and leave. Then, the deafening ring of a meat tenderizer against flesh.

And it all starts again.

Director Biography - Mégane Brügger

I'm a Swiss Filmmaker, passionate about today's most pressing subjects that are close to my feminist and ecological values. I'm particularly interested the queer community, ways of coping with the end of the world, family trauma, and how the next rising generation is dealing with these pressing issues. Based in Lausanne, Switzerland, I'm very attached to my local scène and the vast and divers communities that lie within it. My main practice being documentary work, I'm almost always on the look out for creative ways of living in today's world, and the way people create new storylines for themselves in light of todays events and major societal shifts.
