I always find it a wonder how people can make such short films yet make them so moving.  Patriarch focuses on three generations of a family, showing the very different relationships between the fathers and sons in a very intimate (and I suspect very personal) style.  There is a genuinely heart-stopping moment when the voices between the generations are blurred so I do have to warn you that a hanky may be needed.

Patriarch was written and directed by Reggie Yates and aired on UK TV’s Channel 4 as part of its Random Acts strand.
