THE YOUNG & EVIL is one of the shorts featuring in this year's 23rd London Lesbian And Gay Film Festival.
Writer-Director Julian Breece makes a striking debut with The Young & Evil, a dramatic short about a defiantly promiscuous young man who finds eros in self-destruction. Referencing the controversial 1930s novel of the same title, The Young & Evil provides a chilling lens into how homophobia, faithlessness and longing miscolor the need for human connection. Shot in South Central Los Angeles by veteran cinematographer Carl Bartels, The Young & Evil presents a unique and stylish vision. Pulsing with atmosphere, the film undulates between urban grit and haunting metaphor. With Breece's protagonist as our guide, we're ushered into a labyrinthine world of shadows, where touch equals salvation.
