JAMIE Fiction / 9 mins / UK / 2016
A film by Christopher Manning
with Sebastian Christophers and Raphael Verrion
Jamie, a shy and quiet loner, lets loose his hopes and fears in an unexpected awakening when he meets Ben on a dating app.
'The delicate realism that infuses this short film pervades all its parts – dialogue, cinematography, acting – and creates an intimate and introspective work that talks about the fear of being honest with oneself, more than with others; and it does so quietly, looking into our eyes.'
