LILA

A new film by NICK CLIFFORD & CATE SMIERCIAK

In a wealthy Los Angeles home, a teen runaway has built a new life as a nanny for a young boy. Both living as strangers in their own worlds on either side of innocence, they form a powerful bond. But when a man from her past arrives at the door, he threatens to pull them both back into the world she tried to escape.

Lila is a brief glimpse into a much larger world that its characters live in. The short film examines the tone and mood that will ultimately drive a longer, feature-length film.

THE OPPORTUNIST

A night in the life of a social shape-shifter addicted to the visceral thrill of invading the lives of others.

Official Selection Cannes Film Festival, Critics' Week

One of the strengths of The Opportunist is its central character, whose bad energy drives the film forwards and reveals a very talented actor. This flamboyantly unpleasant character progressively makes us believe he is capable of anything, as he moves through a night in which his opportunism seems motivated by a Machiavellian rage. The film leaves us hanging on every word uttered by this new Patrick Bateman with whom he shares a sort of nihilistic anxiety. David Lassiter promises a film which displays all the power of genre and subtly allowing us to get attached to the characters. -- Fabien Gaffez, Cannes Film Festival
