YEAST is a film about a maddeningly un-self-aware, tyrannical and emotionally stunted young woman trying to negotiate two toxic friendships. Relations between these young women aren’t just a little bit ripeâ€¦they are Ebola-infested, maggot-filled and bursting at the seams. Conceived and made by an actor with no concept of the language of filmmaking, YEAST takes traditional dramatic structure and throws it out of the window to be swept away by the street cleaners (World Premiere)
