The Truth About Stanley

Our tear buckets are full while watching The Truth About Stanley. Directed by the award-winning Lucy Tcherniak, this short film was premiered last April 2 at the Rich Mix Cinema, Shoreditch and was released to the World Wide Web on April 4. The short tells the story of a unique friendship between an old homeless man from Congo and a runaway boy. While living on the streets, the two try to cope up with their own personal baggage. The old man makes up with his vivid imagination and unending stories, while the boy patiently listens and waits for his time to reveal his own baggage.
