| A Masterpiece of Short Films
Worms is an outstanding directorial debut from a very promising artist, Kori Bundi, who also wrote and produced it. Being a short film, it is difficult to provide an overview without spoiling the subtleties of the story but I shall attempt to be as ambiguous as possible.

Superficially, Worms is a fun short about a worm farmer and presumably his wife that is told in a relatively narrative form (Mr. Worm Farmer provides a voice over describing the intricacies of…well, worm farming :) Upon closer examination, though, the story is much more an examination of their relationship – a fascinating exploration of the dynamics comprising their partnership. Perhaps that is what I find most intriguing – the relationship depicts two people who truly are partners; you can tell by the way in which they regard one another that they've weathered many a storm together and while there is a brief period of dissonance between the two it is resolved without either character ever saying a word. I have seen many a couple, particularly elderly couples, that have the same bond, the same partnership and I must admit that I often times look upon them with envy and hope. And that's the sheer beauty of this film in that it so purely captures this bond and serves as an incredible illustration of a relationship construct that is beautiful on a myriad of levels and that many of us could only hope to develop.

Perhaps I am over-analyzing what many would probably regard as a simple, sweet story but even if I am, it does not take away from the fact that Worms is a masterpiece of film shorts and I look very forward to seeing future work from this incredibly gifted artist.
