Abdullah

‘Abdullah’ is the latest short from award winning production company Ne’er Do Well Films, due to play on the festival circuit in 2014.

It is the story of a lonely man – a Turkish mini-cab driver in London who has been forgotten; by the city, by the society and by his own people.

Things take a darker turn when Abdullah picks up a fare one night; a young man who notices Abdullah.

As the two men make a connection, the question becomes clear: can Abdullah change his fate or will he get swallowed by his own dark disconnection.

Written & Directed by: Evrim Ersoy

Producers: James Pearcey & Russell Would

Director of Photography: Stephen Murphy

Original Score: Antoni Maiovvi and the Karakura Orchestra

Shot on Kodak 35mm film with Panavision Anamorphic lenses.
