For Dorian (BOF11)

Drama | 16mins | English (Canada) | 2012



“A father fears the sexual awakening of his disabled son, a teenager living with Down syndrome, and struggles with the notion of letting him grow up.”


Written & Directed by: Rodrigo Barriuso
Starring: Dylan Harman, Ron Lea, Victor Pereira, Tova Smith & Jerald Bezener


For Dorian is a charming short about a father coming to terms with his son growing up. The fact that Dorian has Down Syndrome and is gay isn’t majorly played upon, which is how it should be. It handles the issues well and the father’s character development and the heart-warming ending are extremely satisfying.
