“Next Floor,” a Satirical Short Film About Society’s Gluttonous Ways
This 2008 short film by acclaimed director De Denis Villeneuve won numerous awards during its festival run. Now, you can view the film in its entirety online…for free (yay, Internet). Next Floor is a clever film that critiques society’s obsession with excess and overconsumption by showing an upscale dinner party having a particularly “meaty” meal. The film then takes a surprising twist that’s both smart, hilarious and, most importantly, not ham-fisted. Bon Appétit!
