NO ORDINARY HAM

BLACK COMEDY  |  8 MINS  |  2015
A mysterious story about love, friendship and smallgoods.


Taken seriously by no-one, especially director Reuben Field (who played the role Jake as a learning exercise), "Ham" has nonetheless found success at festivals including FilmQuest Utah. 

Jake and Jimmy share a strange and filthy house, living in a certain kind of harmony... until the day Jimmy brings home a new "friend": a huge, slimy ham. There is not enough room in their world for the ham. Something's gotta give.
