BALCONY - 2016 - Short film

In a neighbourhood rife with racial tension, a local girl falls for a recent immigrant who is the victim of prejudice and shame.

Currently playing on Vimeo as a staff pick premiere.

Screened at over 100 festivals worldwide, winning numerous awards, including 3 Oscar qualifying festivals, the Crystal Bear in Berlin and gaining a BIFA nomination.

Statement from the Berlin jury:

"This film succeeds in astounding the viewer through its sophisticated dramaturgy. The story holds a mirror up to a society still plagued by persistent clichés, a mirror that in the end also forces the audience to face their own prejudices. Provocative and full of strong imagery, this production also manages at the same time to make our current challenges clear."
