EAT WHEN YOU'RE HUNGRY || SHORT FILM || 2019
A follow up to our last festival flick Fat Pants, Eat When You're Hungry centers around the (mostly) true story of Malcolm's grandma's immigration from the Philippines to America. She went from eating newspaper on the dirt floor of her scrap metal house to owning a ton of businesses and selling pugs to Michael Douglas— the real American Dream! We juxtapose the tireless efforts and sacrifices she made immigrating with the most recent result of her struggle: her hot and bothered, barrel of monkeys of a grandson Malcolm. Check our old Kickstarter for more info and DM us for the secret link as we’re submitting to festivals!
