by | February 26, 2019

LCA’s Casa de Carne leaves viewers with a knot in their stomach, an intense feeling that makes even the most devout meat-eaters stop and ponder over his eating habits.

Casa de Carne is a made up fine dinning restaurant, in the award winning short film, where Eric and his friends turn up for lunch. As the server approaches, Eric and his friends gear up for some great time together, except that the experience turns grim and horrific for Eric.

The thought provoking short film, written and directed by Dustin Brown, takes us through the narrow lanes of bitter unseen truth that is hard for even the strongest of us to swallow. We see it through the eyes of Eric, when he turns up to the restaurant with his squad, but is shook by the events that follow.

On ordering ribs, the server takes Eric to an enclosed area where he is locked in with an innocent defenseless pig. Eric is given a butcher’s knife making it very clear: he has to kill his food with his own hands. When he couldn’t bring himself to do the deed, two butchers enter and slit the throat of the wailing pig, right there in front of Eric’s eyes. The camera might have zoomed out but the shrieks of the pig stays with Eric and the viewers for quite some while. Seated back at the table with juicy ribs on a plate in front of him, Eric has blood on his neck from the kill he was forced to watch.

The movie is indeed unsettling and it is the exact purpose it was made for- to make people question their eating habits. A plate full of seasoned ribs has more truth to it than meets the eyes.

Unsurprisingly, LCA’s Casa de Carne secured the first place at 6th Annual Animal Film Festival (AFF). Watch the short film here.
