Last year, trans director (and sometime actor) Jake Graf got huge amounts of praise for his wonderful short film, Dawn, which saw a blind man and a trans woman meeting while waiting for a bus. Dawn was the first part of a trilogy, which continues with Dusk, which has a rather dramatic trailer.
The film premieres tonight at the East End Film Festival in London as part of the New Queer Visions strand at the Rio, Dalston.
The short film is told through flashbacks over several decades of the protagonist ‘Chris” lifetime, exploring how the choices we make can change our lives fundamentally. The cast includes Duncan James, (Chicago, Legally Blonde, Hollyoaks), Victoria Emslie, (The Danish Girl, Downton Abbey, The Theory Of Everything), and US model and actor Elliott Sailors (Spectrum), and crew including award winning cinematographer Lorenzo Levrini and award winning composer Justine Barker.
Take a look at the trailer below. You can find out more about other East End Film Festival New Queer Visions screenings here.
