Well, if that ain't one of the ScreenAnarchy-iest sounding titles up there. That's why it pleases me damn well that we've got two exclusive behind-the-scenes photos to share with you today from Canadian filmmaker Boris Rodriguez's feature debut. Keen on hearing a little bit more about Eddie and his very unique set of hunger pains? Programmer Cara Cusumano from the Tribeca Film Festival, where the film is set to have its North American premiere April 20th, has the "official word" below. After a little sleepwalker munchies 101, take a look at our second BTS shot in all its deliciousness.
Onetime art star Lars Olafssen is all washed up. Too uninspired to
paint, he accepts a teaching stint at a small-time art school in podunk
Koda Lake, Canada, where he does double duty as caretaker for the
offbeat town's neighborhood weirdo, Eddie. Eddie doesn't speak, doesn't
have any friends, and is generally regarded by the townsfolk as a
harmless loon, but to Lars he quickly becomes a trusted companion. As
their unlikely friendship evolves, a dark and violent secret about
Eddie's nocturnal impulses begins to surface. A secret that stirs
long-dormant artistic urges in the creatively stunted Lars. A secret
that he feels compelled to nurture....
A unique and satirical dark comedy, Eddie - the Sleepwalking Cannibal
masterfully balances its quirky humor and its cartoonish eruptions of
grotesque violence as Lars finds himself torn between his duty to his
friend and his duty to his work. As the situation gets increasingly out
of control, Eddie remains ultimately a story about friendship,
and also a story about art--and how far into the abyss one is willing to
go for either.
