Wasps (1997)

Film details


The film explores the moral dilemma facing the wasp exterminator, whose sympathies come to lie with his intended victims rather than his paymasters.

BNFVC Notes: 'The state of society is caricatured in a well-to-do but dysfunctional family, contrasting sharply with the smoothly operating society of wasps in a nest over their heads. A film about insects, infestations, nervous energy, control, chaos and untimely extinction.'
