A young boy is dropped off at an elderly woman’s home for the day. A lone man, who rents a room, adds to the unsettling atmosphere. The savage slaughter of a chicken makes this daycare a harsh and confusing world for the boy, who learns caring can be shown in unexpected ways.
To date, The Renter has won 18 awards/nominations and has screened at more than 85 film festivals worldwide // A film by Jason Carpenter.
In a pocket of earth / I buried all the accents / of my mother tongue
there they lie / like needles of pine / assembled by ants
one day the stumbling cry / of another wanderer / may set them alight
then warm and comforted / he will hear all night / the truth as lullaby
– John Berger
