“A pudgy little man lives on the top floor of a skyscraper. During the day, he’s a garbage man, but in the evening, he watches Tarzan movies and dreams off in his lush roof jungle. One day, when he hears the aggressive rants of his neighbor, he looks for the Tarzan inside to rescue his next-door Jane.”

Film by Pieter Vandenabeele, Belgium, 2017.

Screened at over 45 international film festivals including KLIK, Seoul Int’l Youth Film Festival, Athens Animfest, Anima Mundi, Anibar, Linoleum Festival, and Encounters.
