DEMONS

Matt is a closeted serial killer on the hunt for love and acceptance in a pretty messed up world where killing, cannibalism, republicanism and a multitude of inner demons are pretty much accepted and even encouraged, but being gay is still considered kinda lame. Whenever a guy gets too close he...ummm.....well...maybe Adam can change that.

GARBAGE

Jean and Jacob decide it's time to make some changes, but Jean and Jacob need to get trashed first. 'Garbage' is about two misguided millennials on the run from themselves; their friendship is strong but their convictions are not. Tired of a life filled with cheap thrills, they set out to find their purpose after one last night of debauchery. Why do today what you can do hungover?

SATURN DEVOURS

In the middle of a high-stakes interview, rings of ice and carbon form around 29-year-old Johnnie's head, making him resemble the planet Saturn. Later, he gets followed by an old man in a toga (with a fondness for raw meat), coinciding with a string of bad luck. From bombing the interview, to losing his job, to chipping his tooth, Johnnie just can’t catch a break. But when a one-night stand turns into an impromptu info session on the tumultuous astrological phenomenon known as the Saturn Return, Johnnie finally starts to realize what he’s dealing with.

 

Weird, funny, queer, and casually Magical Realist, SATURN DEVOURS is a short film about growing older and facing your demons.

Directed by Johnnie Walker
