MARCO (22 min)

MARCO 135 copy.jpeg

Omar lives a lonely life in London. He's been in the city for over a decade, and spends his days working and ignoring his mother's phone calls. One evening, he reaches for his phone and invites over a young man that catches his eye: a Spanish sex worker called Marco. But as their night together progresses, Omar gets much more than he paid for. A story about alienation and the search for intimacy in modern-day London, as well as a meditation on the pain of loss and exile, ‘Marco’ is also a universal story of that most simple and intangible of desires: the need for human connection and the subtle, radical changes it can bring.

'Marco' was shot in London in April 2018, and premiered in March 2019. For more information, visit Marco's Kickstarter and IMDB pages.
