Admit One

Short Film (Full Length) – 1999

This comical, racey and very short film doesn't leave much to the imagination. Written and directed by Christchurch filmmaker Patrick Gillies, the short was inspired by actual events glimpsed in the Paris Metro. As Press reviewer Hans Petrovic put it, they bring "new meaning to the intimacy of cinema". Gillies' second short was nominated for Best Short Film at the Montréal World Film Festival. Although Admit One has no dialogue, the cinemagoers discomfort is evident as he suffers through a different show to the one he originally desired. Musician Isaac Aesili features as one of those causing the discomfort.

Filmed in the People's Republic of Christchurch N.Z.
