WITHOUT (2011)

American indie director Mark Jackson's debut film, WITHOUT (2011). Winner of the Best Director award at Thessaloniki International Film Festival (TIFF) 2011. 


Director: Daniel Zinkant.
Dan is young and dreams of love. In this beautifully made short on gay love we are let into his world, experiencing the beauty he sees and so desires. Flicking between two worlds of fantasy and real-life, we feel his pain of unrequited love. As the narrative comes to an end we watch the three friends disperse, and Dave is left alone- his love unknown, unsaid and only known by him and us. Beloved was made through our First Light Studio Award. A group of 15-19 year-olds worked together to produce the film which was written by a young person.
