Bulgaria-based director Kevork Aslanyan talks about the inspiration behind his European Short Film Festival-winning short film, Getting Fat in a Healthy Way:

“The story behind the film came up after I read Slapstick, or Lonesome No More!by American author Kurt Vonnegut, in which people have considerable problems with gravity. When it was too high, everyone was forced to lie on the ground and all the men had erections.

“My wish was to use this gravity event to tell a love story between a skinny man and a plump woman, the visual reference of real true love—like seeing an ‘I’ and an ‘O’ together.”
