Steven and the Beetle

Piotr Loc Hoang Ngoc
Stefan i Żuczek
Poland 2012 / 12’

Adored by women, coach Stefan lives in a sterile and ordered community. Beetle, on the other hand, embodies everything expunged from Stefan’s life: spontaneity, corporeality, and lack of hygiene. Their paths cross and seeds of friendship take strong root (though it reeks of mésalliance) in a surprisingly fresh diagnosis of interpersonal relationships and an interesting metaphor for the dangerous tendencies in our contemporary world.
