description

ARE WE NOT CATS is the strange but tender story of a man who, after losing his job, his girlfriend, and his apartment in a single day, attempts to restart his life, but is sidetracked when he meets a woman who shares his unorthodox habit – a proclivity for eating hair. A chronicle of the economic and emotional mishaps of the troubled and lonesome 20-something living in his truck, over the course of several hectic days. The romantic horror comedy with a focus on the grotesque is a feature-length expansion of writer/director/star Xander Robin’s 2013 short film of the same name.
