A smartly written tale of urban despair, suffering and salvation, Man Feel Pain is an irreverently funny look at how the young man living in apartment 4B inadvertently becomes a martyr and wipes clean the sins of his neighbours through his experiments with self-inflicted pain. It was named Best Canadian Short Film at the Toronto International Film Festival® and went on to win the audience award at the Whistler Film Festival.
