Surprisingly real, yet kinda beautiful.

This short tells the story of someone ‘coming out’ without resting on cliché or drama in a simple yet effective way, almost verging on moving.

 

Summer (Short) in 50 words:

Despite coming out in 2006, Khaou’s Summer feels as if it could have been made today. The ‘coming out’ story is simple, real and… in a way, sweet. The acting style of both leads supports the story and tone really well. A memorable line: “You can’t just nick my leaf!”
