A Man Regales His Peculiar Obsession with Chairs to His New Psychiatrist
20 Minutes | Short Film
Chairs: convenient, comfortable, useful, even beautiful. They are part of our everyday. Everywhere we turn in there they are, in one form or another. We appreciate them, but sometimes appreciation turns to adoration and even obsession. To the point it takes over your life.
This is what life is like for Joel Judson.
We meet Joel as he decides to confront his obsession; his desire – an appointment with psychiatrist Seraphina Brooks.
As Joel regales his peculiar condition, Seraphina is drawn into a situation she never expected.
The film shot for 5 days across London, with an ensemble cast, in some of the most beautiful locations the city has to offer.
This was followed by a post-production in Rome, London, San Francisco, South Carolina, and Paris.
The film is now on festival submission. It has just been accepted into the Oscar® Qualifying 32nd Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles.
