Director Statement

KILL YOUR LANDLORD is about three roommates, all cohabitating in a one-bedroom apartment, who, one day, find a hidden kitchen behind the walls. They must navigate anthropomorphic termite landlords and evil tech corporations in the midst of a bleak reality. This serves as a satirical commentary addressing the dystopian living conditions our generation faces, where meeting basic needs is a luxury. This film explains why we call our fine city Scam Francisco, from the people’s perspective; it’s real, it’s raw, it’s ridiculous, it’s necessary.
