Who I Am Now
When Tariq’s older brother arrives from Egypt - the first time he’s seen him since he came to the UK and since his transition - he’s forced to confront his complicated feelings about family.
Denise, his friend, a fellow trans refugee and teammate, shares her own story about friends and family.
A film about the family we're born into and the families we make from our friends.
Based on an idea by Zan Scott.

Bouba and Kiki is a 10 minute short drama about a young neurodiverse librarian struggling with a strange form of synaesthesia where he associates the sound of voices with flavours.

This film was made with support of the Glasgow Short Film Festival and Production Attic after winning the GSFF's annual pitch competition and premiered as part of the BAFTA qualifying Scottish Competition at the Glasgow Short Film Festival 2019.
