The Heyl brothers are back with their familiar stylistic approach to filmmaking and their unique method of storytelling. Carnivore delves into the dark fantasy world of a fragile son fearful of his father. With epic slowmotion shots, stylish pans and larger than life characters they once again prove that the time has come for bigger, more ambitious projects in The Netherlands. Carnivore starts off in a small contemporary waiting room. The young son has injured his arm, but his father threatens not to tell the truth behind the incident. When the child starts drawing, he envisions a twisted recount of the affaires and we see the events unfold through a childlike distortion. Carnivore covers violence, vegetarianism, cannibalism and fear of authority through the eyes of a child. Exaggerated, hyperbolic, dreamlike and definitely unique. Carnivore is the one short you do not want to miss. Written by Justin Heyl
