Double Happy Short Film (Full Length) – 2010 Drama

Double Happy

Short Film (Full Length) – 2010 Drama

Start video player

This short film finds four 1990s teenagers caught up in the complications of growing up in Hutt Valley suburbia. Rising tensions during a day hanging out at the local park see misfit Rory (Riley Brophy) ignite a cracker bag of cravings for belonging, furtive sexual feelings, violence, racism and boredom. The combustive results of his misdirected teen spirit give the film’s title a grim irony. Fijian-born director Shahir Daud based the story loosely on his own experiences as a teen. Double Happy screened at the Montreal Film Festival and was a Short of the Week website pick in May 2011.

I just wanted to make a film about something that really mattered, and not just treat the short film as a ‘stepping stone’ or pathway to feature film.
