Michael [2014]

'Michael' is a short film that I wrote and directed in the summer of 2014. It was made for the Unchosen Modern Day Slavery charity filmmaking competition and won the prize for: Best Forced Labour Film: UK Consumer.

The judges for the competition were Ken Loach and Justin Chadwick amongst others.

It has since gone on to play at a number of festivals in 2015 and 2016, including Raindance [UK] and Tampere [Finland] British Shorts Berlin [Germany] amongst others.

You can watch the film below.

 

Synopsis:

When a homeless man is promised a better life working on a farm, he finds himself a prisoner and yearns to escape.
