Trailer. Winner of the Queer Palm at Cannes Film Festival, this poignant short tells the story of a teenage orphan who is cruelly left isolated for being ‘different’.

Inspired by real-life events, ‘The Orphan’ is the story of Jonathas, a young boy living in a children’s home, awaiting adoption. Taken home for a trial period by a married couple, he’s soon “returned” due to his effeminate mannerisms. This powerful short film features a spellbinding performance by its young lead and is a tribute to the resilience and bravery of queer children.

Watch exclusively on VIMEO STAFF PICK PREMIERE along with an interview with Carolina.
