An artist, during a career retrospective, is visited by hungry ghosts from his past; the subject of his most celebrated piece and his former creative partner.  These spectres force him to re-view his past actions, thus generating new understandings in the present, the release of old grief and a little bit of revenge.
By Lesley Ewen (Vancouver, BC/London, UK)
Directed by Chelsea Haberlin
In partnership with Itsazoo Productions (Vancouver, BC)
