Jake, a gender non-conforming seven year old, invites us into his world to explore the transforming power that love and support can have when children are accepted for who they are. Directed by Jeremy Asher Lynch, this short documentary opens documentary, screening 1 at the Aesthetica Short Film Festival.
The everyday trials and discoveries of life around the planet are brought vividly to the screen in a series of documentary shorts. From the impact of globalisation to the troubled quiet of a seaside town, the documentary genre at ASFF guides audiences through a revival of the familiar and a discovery of the unknown.
The Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2015, until 8 November, venues across York.
