This is such a life affirming short film that it may well make you cry (if you are as big and as soft as I am it is a guarantee). It shows, through a series of tiny vignettes, the relationship between two people from their original introduction until – well, watch it and find out. At just over two minutes no one can accuse you of wasting your time, even if you are work. OK, possibly if you are at work but if you share it with your boss then you should be fine. Don’t send me a bill if you get fired, though.

Touch is directed and edited by Nimer Rashed and produced by Lindsay Fraser who also appears in the short as Katie. He was the Royal Court Theatre’s filmmaker-in-residence in 2012 (if you live outside of the UK that’s quite prestigious). He also writes plays and theater scripts.
