The Feast

a short film



The Feast is a story of power, abuse, and hunger - in all its forms. 

The short film was developed and produced by Gaëlle Mourre & Michelle Fan for Fat Red Bird, the film company founded  by  Gaëlle. 

The story is based on the original short fiction by the acclaimed writer L.P. Lee.


Hayley, a self-possessed young woman from a hungry community, longs for opportunities to achieve her artistic dreams.

One day, she receives an invitation from the Count – the only wealthy man in the land – to dine with him at a lavish feast in his majestic mansion. Hayley has heard of these occasions before. Each time, the guest returns home – unharmed, but silent, guilty, and changed.

She resolves to turn her invitation into a career opportunity. But as Hayley takes her place at the Count’s table, she is unprepared for what he has in store for the feast.
