Directors Sandra Isacsson & Caroline Wallén on the idea behind Maneater:
“We got the idea for the movie during a conversation that we had about sexism in the history of film. One of the most glaring examples we could think of was a scene from ‘Lolita’ - when she eats a banana. Pop-culture not only depicts the banana as a sexual object but also loves to put things in women's mouths. We wanted to reverse that concept and to put a man in that position within the narrative of a short film. What happens if we objectify a man as they did with Lolita?”
