Snimljen u noćnom svetu škotskih klubova i spavaćih soba, ova ekspresivna drama spaja dva veoma drugačija queer momka koji žele ono što ovaj drugi ima: ženstveni i osećajni Elliott, koji traži pravu vezu ali ne može da pobegne od veza na jednu noć, i muževni Jake, zarobljen u braku, traži izlaz.

My Loneliness Is Killing Me

Short film

Director: Tim Courtney

UK, 2018

Duration: 17 min

Winner: BAFTA Scotland Award, Best Short Film

Moodily shot in the nighttime world of Scottish clubs and bedrooms, this expressive drama brings together two very different queer folks who want what the other seems to have: femme and sensitive Elliott, stuck in hookup culture but seeking a real connection, and brutish Jake, stuck in a marriage and seeking escape.
