Title: Summer
Director: Hong Khaou

Starring: Jay Brown
------------ Peter Peralta
Running Time: 9 mins 11 secs
English Language


Two friends, roam the woods of Hampstead Heath on a project for school. As the walk they talk, and boys being boys talking leads to bragging, sexual exploits are embellished and the rough housing begins but with the bravado a little too much truth is revealed.

Hong Khaou's short is a tender, tough and identifiable film. So easily relatable is the story that it may cut a little close to home for some. Growing up gay has never been easy but as long as you've got friends...

The last line in the film is just too sad to think about. i know there are many out there who that line will ring true for.

Great little short. That last line, so few words, but such a powerful and heartbreaking statement.
