starving.

A group of consumption-obsessive teenagers are forced to face the greatest threat to their way of life: empathy, herself.

We eat to fuel ourselves. But at some point along the way, consumption for the sake of consumption became a societal obsession. The “fuel” is now apathy. It’s vanity. We fill ourselves with empty calories, and our outsides become as empty as our insides. 

Hunger is painful, and ironically all-consuming. “Starving” asks nothing of its audience but to relish in the frustrations of unapologetic apathy and vanity that societal consumption breeds.

Consume this film. It’ll leave you feeling as empty as anything else society begs you to consume.
