Dead Body

2002 Canada / USA  40 Minutes

Hassan, a funeral poet, is going through writers block. Sitting at his desk in a small cramped room with his girlfriend lying on a mattress he leaves for some ‘air’- instead he drifts and deviates into other happenings, including but not limited to an endless procession of gum-chewing, an encounter with a rotund Hungarian ‘delivery man’ and a sexy Russian woman. Hassan’s journey has a metaphysical aspect to it and life in this surreal world is focused on the strange work, anxiety and humour that hovers over death.
