A high school outsider’s (Nadia Zwecker) obsession with internet culture mutates into a sexual awakening when she discovers the South Korean phenomenon ‘mukbang’.

Eliza Scanlen is best known for her roles in HBO’s acclaimed series Sharp Objects, Greta Gerwig’s Little Women and Shannon Murphy’s Babyteeth. Mukbang is her writing and directorial debut.



*The version of MUKBANG in the SFF Virtual Edition was changed on Friday 19 June, on the filmmakers’ request, to remove an image which may cause unintended triggers. Sydney Film Festival respects the filmmakers’ request and concerns.
