"Wow , that wading cadaver with skewered fish and dangling tongue, all aflame, make for one of the most startling shots in all of film. Orsten Groom's ethos is incredible! Twisted, a little mean, often ugly, always gorgeous! "

                                                                                  Guy Maddin

A corpse runs down a river in a wartime Europa. A vampire with a lost mouth that pulls a dead tongue and sows images as clues.

Some livings prowl around, patterns proliferate and beasts get involved.

Entirely handcrafted by Orsten Groom (camera, music, editing and lead actor), BOBOK dips between the macabre cartoon, the abstract thriller and the historical haunting.
