Short Film Profile


A man who has withdrawn from society now lives in a field with a cherished pile of things that he adds to daily - a monument of junk, a shrine of things forgotten and discarded. An eager woman watches, follows, questions the recluse.

Film notes

Warped social convention, capitalistic worship, and the search for meaning all leer wearily at us before we’re able to retreat; back to the first degree amongst 364 others: a doomed and looping dance.

Meathead is the aftermath of the girl of your dreams being hit by a car.
It is anarchic, alienating, slippery, unsettling, amoral, spinning, an indirect kick to the teeth, an asthmatic out of breath, pointed, skewering, unreasonable. It is a cracked circus mirror held up to a daily routine, and the reflection refracted is just familiar enough to identify with and foreign enough to reconsider.
Philosophically, it is underwritten by a few threads that vary in prominence: the genuflection of object and possession, the profane union of marriage, the oddly present awe that reverberates when throats are cut in a cut-throat system.
