The Borer

2017, 30 minutes

Does Richard choose servitude or freedom? Does he decide to be a boy or a man? Can he endure The Borer?

Inspired by the works of John Carpenter and David Cronenberg, The Borer follows the journey of a dead-end young man. Tired, lazy and undetermined, Richard seems set to live out the rest of his days without change or challenge. Now, the times are changing. Richard now has to adjust, sharing his life involuntarily with a brain parasite, capable of communication and manipulation. As the relationship between the parasitic Borer and Richard develops, we see their friendships flourish and decay, as their own pursuits and aspirations clash. Does Richard choose servitude or freedom? Does he decide to be a boy or a man? Can he endure The Borer?
