Hunger - Directed by Manu Herrera


Judah's world revolves entirely around dance. A disciplinary and somewhat monotonous life that absorbs you completely and keeps you apart from society. Rebekah will be her light, her exit door to the outside. Knowing her will lead Judah to her most animal part and to the search for her true self, giving free rein to her deepest appetites. After an intense rehearsal, Judah awakens an irremediable desire for Rebeca, her recent dance partner in the company where she works. Rebeca's insistence will lead them to a sentimental approach, this will lead to a much more intimate encounter between them.

The excitement of the moment mixed with the smell of Rebekah will give free rein to a part of Judah that he himself did not know. Something would wake up inside him that remained hidden, a predator wanting Rebeca's flesh, to drag him to devour her like an animal.

Such events will push Judah to search for that inner part, hitherto unknown, for a world of irremediable desire, irremediably addressing cannibalism. In his mind, the image of an animal that eats women will take shape. Judah's life will turn into night and day, into a double life that will share the world of dance that fills him so much, with the pursuit of pleasure by eating raw meat from his victims. After Judah's self-confirmation as the predator he is, having tasted raw meat, the reverse will seem unattainable.

Javier, a new dancer from his dance company, will cross his path. Javier will get Judah to rethink his entire universe completely and get carried away by a feeling he had never experienced towards anyone. The doubts and desire about Javier, both sentimental and carnal, will lead our character to a state of catharsis, dragging Javier to the most irrational sacrifice.
