The th2ng duo Daniel Lumb and Crinan Campbell (The Queen) are proud winners at the first ever Sundance London Short Film Competition for their five-minute short film, Extranjero. The film will screen as part of the official Short Film programme at the festival.
Extranjero, shot over just two days, gives the viewer a unique and unusual take on immigration as it follows a refugee trying to run from his past as well as the confusion in his own mind.
Daniel Lumb explains his idea behind the short film: "I wanted to comment on people you don’t really know about, and Extranjero was the result. Winning the competition is a dream for both us. As film geeks it’s amazing to be associated with Sundance.”
Trevor Groth, Director of Programming for the Sundance Film Festival, said: "Ultimately the jury selected Extranjero for its commanding cinematic storytelling and arresting visuals that offer an alternate perspective on an imperative global issue.”
