MILO // Short Film // 2021
When Alex, a queer radio programmer, discovers an injured dog on the side of the road, their night takes a turn for the unexpected. Through their journey into the night, and Milo’s fight for his life, Alex comes face to face with what it means to be alone, and the work it takes to let someone in.
"MILO" Is a film about a reluctant hero and recognizing our patterns of self-isolation. We all have moments of change, some happen gradually, and some snap into view. We follow Alex through their journey into the night saving Milo, a dog they found on the street. Alex comes face to face with themself when they see Milo. Through the experience, we see Alex change and take the first steps towards vulnerability.
Queer and non-binary representation is crucial in my work both on and off-screen. "MILO" has an entire queer, female and non-binary crew, as well as the lead.
