@57th Documentary and Short Film Festival Belgrade
A couple is at the table, having breakfast. In the neighborhood, a third screams.
How much can they swallow?
“Appetite” is a short experimental film about the fear of indifference, about a lack of empathy and the times when it is too late, or simply when there is no more choice, so a lack of reaction becomes the necessary result of helplessness. The story is about the phenomenon of forced indifference and rift that causes, on the morning in which someone tries to have breakfast (and what else?) while in the next room / apartment / house / street / district / city / country / world / head – someone else is asking for help.
No, no … do not be strict!
Even if they want to, they can’t do anything at this moment.
