Winnipeg and the emptiness of modern life.
A man pulls over on the side of the road. The gas station restroom is occupied—nature is calling, so he sets off into the surrounding forest, where he encounters two stoners making love by a river. Meanwhile, a comedian performs local gigs, but none of her jokes land.
Steeped in bleak, bone-dry humor, Tapeworm burrows into the lives of so-called "losers" to reveal the banality and emptiness of modern life. Milos Mitrovic and Fabian Velasco's debut film premiered at the Vancouver International Film Festival, Tallinn Black Nights, and Slamdance.
