Truman (reborn) - Jeremy Dutton

On a gloomy day, a woman appears nearly overcome with emotion as she walks towards an unknown destiny. In her apartment, the woman slices and devours fruit upon fruit till one abruptly transports her, interrupting an unseen grief.⁠

Director’s Statement: I’m drawn to the act of eating - it’s primal, even gruesome, and undeniably physical. You take a bite, plum juice leaks from the corner of your mouth, drips down through your fingers, and lands in the crevices of your hand. Remnants leave a stickiness on your skin even after you wipe it - my goal is to make videos that stay with you the same way.
