The Lonely Isles

A new short film written and directed by Max Hakim

Produced by Sean Doucette & Sydney Clark

Cinematography by Juli Alonso

Andrew, an awkward 16-year-old, spends his free time writing poetry on a Central Park bench. Stuck in his own head, Andrew is blind to the world around him including Gene, an 85-year-old man who sits next to him on the same bench every day. Unapologetically honest, shameless, and effortlessly clever, Gene forms an unlikely friendship with Andrew that helps him open his eyes to the poetic inspiration found in a simple day at the park.
