THE BUFFET  is a five-part hyper-realist docufiction,

mostly shot with an iphone 6s plus ---

a film 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.

additionally, THE BUFFET focuses on THE MEAL

as a dual space for social interaction

& the quintesential  hyper-consumerist space

--- a space for quenching that insatiable,

impulsive, id-based urge to eat;

eating... for the sake of eating.

THE BUFFET also draws inspiration from Dogme 95

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
