In Camera

Naqqash Khalid went into production with his alluring-sounding directorial debut this past August. Set in Manchester, in a nutshell, In Camera details what happens when the casting couch offers little and destiny is driven by what one makes available to them. Featuring Nabhaan Rizwan, Limbo (2020) player Amir El-Masry and Rory Fleck Byrne, the 2020 Stars of Tomorrow Khalid described the project as “a fairytale about ambition, performance and identity”. The debut is produced by Prettybird’s Juliette Larthe and Public Dreams’ Mary Burke.

Gist: This follows Aden (Rizwan) – a young man who spends most of his time recording self-tapes for parts he never gets. After he receives multiple rejections for a series of nightmarish commercial auditions, he takes it upon himself to find a new part to play.

Release Date/Prediction: This could be timed for a TIFF world preem and/or London BFI showcase.
