Wonderful short film about people's fascination on entertainment. Even before the US had Survivor, de Leon introduced the concept of seeing people living in squalor and depravity as a feast for the masses' enjoyment. A casting call for the next set of actors in a propaganda film becomes the setting for trouble when the would-be performers begin to rebel against their director. When the director notices the pain and hopelessness in the hapless applicants, he comes up with a bright idea: why not sell misery as entertainment? Sure enough, his concept becomes a hit!
