A Feast with King Midas

Timo Wright

A Feast with King Midas is an experimental short film that deals with overconsumption. A man sits at a table heaped with food – a whole turkey, fruits, meats, fish. An empty plate is on the table. The man looks at the camera. Food around him starts to rot, the man sits without an expression. Installation version also available.
