Filip Jan Rymsza, director of Mosquito State, out of competition in 77th Venice Film Festival, talks to FRED about this story of a man obsessed with mosquitoes, set on the verge of the financial crisis in august 2007. We explore some of the symbols in the film, like the mosquitoes seen as vampires or capitalism as a system that drinks our blood.

Mosquito State: August 2007. Isolated in his austere penthouse overlooking Central Park, obsessive Wall Street data analyst Richard Boca sees ominous patterns. His computer models are behaving erratically, as are the swarms of mosquitos breeding in his apartment, an infestation that attends his psychological meltdown.
