The Meat of the Beast

Synopsis

The journey of a vegan elementary school teacher, Sofia and one of her student’s fathers, the butcher Charlie, in a small town.
Sofia creates a seminar on pain and makes a clear link between the adults in the town and the meat being eaten. She demonstrates the meaning behind the cruel food industry that their own parents are part of. This triggers a crisis in the relationships between the parents and their children, especially between the butcher Charlie and his son Gabriel.

This creates a dilemma for the school management: whether to dismiss Sofia or let her stay. Her future will be decided in a parent-teacher conference, which will be nothing more than a faithful reproduction of the lesson she gave to the students.
In this context, Charlie and his son begin a journey in search for each other.

A series of 16mm short films featuring different characters going about their daily lives: washing clothes, combing their hair, watching rain fall on a window, sitting in a chair, putting on makeup, getting dressed, sewing clothes, walking a dog, drinking tea, crying, looking in the mirror, masturbating, reading a book, writing a letter, watering a plant, standing inside a balcony, taking a bath, smoking, alone in an office.
