Winner of 2010 DGA Student Film Award.
Best Thesis Film Prize at Wesleyan University.
An art student, after a painful break-up with his lover/figure model, discovers an occult sensuality in his new artistic subject matter – fruits. His displaced desire for his ex-lover invigorates a spirit within the fruits. Before he knows it, they begin furtively enticing him down a path of strange and absurd fantasies.
This film is partially inspired by Japanese mythology, which states that everything – whether a rock or a tree or a house - possesses a spirit. The spirit can be timid or mischievous; kind or vengeful. They are perceptive of human emotions, and from time to time, choose to interact with humans.
