White text on a black screen reads: ‘JUGGERNAUT PRODUCTIONS presents’
The lit butt of a cigarette spins in from the top right-hand corner past the words, turning the letters into ash that disperses revealing new text: ‘a film by Stefan Rochfort’
A car drives into the top left-hand corner, taillights visible.
The sound of a car driving along a road.
The cigarette but hits the roadside, bursting a shower of sparks that rises up to form a word: ‘ERGOTISM’
As the word forms, there’s a clipped sound like a match lighting in reverse
The letters glow against the black screen as if they have been drawn using a sparkler
A buzzing sound rises then stops
A side-on view of a young man driving a car.
A car driving along a road
Upbeat music plays at a low volume beneath the dialogue
[Driver] Bro. Do you think it's safe to keep driving if I can't feel my feet?
A profile shot of another young man in the passenger seat who replies.
[Passenger] Fuck knows bro. Can you still see the road?
The image turns back to the driver who nods
[Driver] Yeah, it's that gravelly shit in front of the bonnet.
The road seems to distort, stretching and elongating as if reflected in a liquified fairground mirror.
The two men look around to the back seat of the car.
The screen cuts to black with a white logo of mirror image curved leaf stems surrounding the text: ‘Official selection Rhode Island International Film Festival 2008’
Beneath the logo a quote reads:
“…wholly original …a keen sense of irony”
Upbeat rock music
A close up of a woman’s eyes against a dark background.
On a black screen the logo CANAL+ and beneath it the quote: “…we really love this film”
A close up of a woman’s mouth with drool dribbling out of the corner and down her face.
The logo of IKFF Hamburg with a squashed globe and stylised movie reel peeling off it with the quote: “… laughed my ass off”
The music level rises with a prominent beat
A figure with the head of a cow and body of a man raises its bare arms.
Quick cut to the darkened road. Headlights illuminate a creature with the body of a cow and the upper torso and head of a balding man. Reeling back, his arms cover his face.
A man screams
The driver of the car steps hard on the brake.
A female passenger in the back seat is flung forwards, bashing her head on the seat in front.
The front passenger glares at the driver.
[Passenger] Bro would you quit it?
The driver holds up his hands as if to explain. A cigarette burns in his right hand.
[Driver] But the dude with the hooves and the.. udders.
