Storyline

Lars Olafssen, once a young celebrity in the art world is slipping away fast into the land of has-beens. His long-time art dealer, Ronny, is now an ungracefully aging hipster who desperately wants his meal ticket back. But Lars refuses to paint. His creativity comes at too high a cost - his inspiration is carnage - blood, guts and limbs. Not surprisingly, this lead to a dreadful breakdown in the past. Nevertheless, an eager Ronny arranges a teaching job for Lars at an art school in Koda Lake, a small Canadian town in the middle of nowhere. It's a "therapeutic" measure for Lars - a means to conquer his need to paint in the "safety" of a country retreat... That is, until Eddie comes into his life. Written by dobbinnian / rodriguez

Night Munches
14 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Artist create art, but often they need a bit of inspiration to get the vision of their creation. Artists Lars Olafssen is in a bit of a funk, he has not produced anything in over ten years. So he find a home in a school as a teacher, there he still cannot break his silence. He befriends Eddie, who is a bit slow and an outcast. Lars has the patience to bring him into his confidence and discovers a hidden secret, when Eddie sleeps he craves flesh and his dreams get him carried away as he becomes the sleep walking cannibal. This gruesome discovery excites Lars and he finds inspiration in what would disgust others. This showing was part of opening for the new home of Cineprov! at the Plaza Theatre, where local arts use their improv talent to add color to the scenes on the big screen.
