Everyman (2021)

Scottish Documentary Institute
Bombito Productions

Everyman is a 10 minute visual essay, developed and supported by the Scottish Documentary Institute's highly acclaimed Bridging the Gap programme.

A personal, visual essay about gender transition – focusing on the social context and implications and exploring how the world is different living as female compared to being perceived as male. Jack tells his story by using and reframing gender focused tropes and imagery from popular culture, mythology, history and art. Starring an all-queer cast to display different aspects of Jack's life and identity, mirroring his experience from his unique point of view.

Everyman won an RTS award, was shortlisted for the Grierson Award and won Best Short Film at the BAFTA qualifying SQIFF 2021 and Best Film at Euregion Film Festival 2022.
Jack was selected by Cinesud to participate with Everyman in their annual Talent to Cannes programme in 2022.
