Hunger is a short film about growth and desire. It's difficult to watch anything these days without watching it through the lens of COVID-19, but I can't help but see this short as an allegory for the resilience of the human spirit. Like a plant bends towards the sun, so do we gravitate towards the things that nourish us and make us whole when times are dark.
