WANTON, 45min., Canada
Directed by Victor Dubyna
Wanton is an abstract and expressionistic musical-horror-show about identity, self, repression, anxiety, nostalgia, and the digital age. Through a series of obscure and ghostly images, the film tells the loose story of a man fighting to take off a self-imposed mask. He succeeds, however the mask then grows into a malevolent being, preying on his fears, haunting him, and plunging him deeper into the void.
