Though his feature-length debut For A Good Time, Call… is left a little lacking, Jamie Travis‘ short The Saddest Boy In The World is much more impressive. Telling the story of poor Timothy Higgins, for whom the world seems to be conspiring against, he feels there’s no choice but to hang himself. But ever the dramatist, Timothy chooses his own 9th birthday as his stage, with a raft of people in the crowd. Surprising subject, but a really excellent film.
