THE BUFFET  is a five-part hyper-realist docufiction,
mostly shot with an iphone 6s plus ---
a series of films which fully embraces the smartphone
as the current, unequivocal universal device
for making still & moving images
by the everyday person, for the regular user
using basic mobile technologies.



as a multi-channel installation, THE BUFFET focuses
on THE MEAL 
as a dual space for social interaction
& the quintessential, hyper-consumerist venue
for quenching that insatiable, impulsive, id-based
urge to eat; 
eating... for the sake of eating.



THE BUFFET also draws from  Dogme 95   particularly
their preference for hyper-realist, handheld shots

& their use of the setting's "natural light "
over any sort of lighting at all, if any.

-------------------------------------------------

content-wise, THE BUFFET  is comprised
of an interview with a buffet restaurant owner
a dialogue about proper nan & curry consumption,
selfie-confessions in the midst of a very early
morning french breakfast, pre-dinner tips on
how to simultaneously binge watch netflix shows,
paint toe nails, smoke hash & marijuana joints
 ( while taking a warm bath ) and mired
in an internal monologue with yourself...

... all while dining at   THE BUFFET
