‘Little Piggies’ is a black comedy about sibling rivalry, body image, and sexual domination.
Timid, overweight Teddy has recently fallen in love with Beau, he is a feeder- a fetishist who is sexually gratified by feeding others and watching them gain weight. The relationship allows Teddy to eat whatever he wants and gives him a new found sense of freedom until his judgmental sister Daisy returns from a business trip.
Daisy resumes living in the house she shares with her brother and starts to try to create distance between him and Beau, who has moved into the house in her absence. She shames Teddy into losing weight which further alienates Beau from Teddy.
So begins a tug of war over Teddy’s heart that can only end when he decides to forge his own path.
About the Director.
Adam Barr writes and directs high-concept art films that push at the boundaries of good taste in order to reveal something profound about human nature and society. His latest short film, The Human Punching Bag’ (in post-production) is about a washed-up boxer moonlights as a human punching bag for the rich.
Adam currently studies directing under such Aussie luminaries as David Caesar (‘Underbelly’, ‘Dirty Deeds’) and Nicholas Hope (‘Bad Boy Bubby’).
Teddy (25) is a shy, agreeable sort with a romantic heart. He is dominated by his sister, Daisy and extremely sensitive about his weight. He loves his boyfriend Beau, but suspects that he is being used by the fat fetishist. The key turning point in the script is the moment he stands up to them both.
