The Waiting Room
Following an argument with his aunt, Alex finds himself in a strange room filled with many doors, each one a gateway to a strange place. In order to make his way back to the real world, Alex must face the emotions he has been refusing to feel since the death of his mother.
This short film was written, directed, and performed by young people aged 14-19 alongside a professional crew, during a five day residential filmmaking week Summer 2018.
