Life Is Short

Michael is a seventeen year-old kid who gets a job at the local meat works. The place is challenging and his fellow workers aren’t exactly welcoming of new blood. It soon becomes clear that this day isn’t going to be about just trying to fit in. His biggest concern will be getting out alive. With outstanding cinematography and sound design and filmed in a real, functional abattoir, it is no surprise that Meat Head was chosen for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
