The film Fresh (2014) introduces a hypothetical situation wherein a man, covered entirely in vegetables yet still recognizable as human, resides in a greenhouse—the quintessential hybrid of nature and culture. He interacts with insects, machines, and other humans in encounters that border on the absurd: a polygraph tests his emotional responses to images of plant life; a chef harvests vegetables from his body
that are subsequently carved into fully functional musical instruments.
Here, a quasi-nature documentary transforms into an experimental concert and animal, vegetable, and mineral interact and overlap in surprising ways.
