Short of the Week - Oksijan by Edward Watts

Thursday 30 May 2019, by Abla Kandalaft

Edward Watts’s powerful, claustrophobic short Oksijan is available to watch for a week as part of BBC Arabic’s Cinema Badila’s Cannes 2019 episode, at 29 min in. The short is followed by an interview with Edward Watts.

This independent short film, based on an incredible true story, follows a seven-year old Afghan refugee’s battle to survive as he is smuggled to the UK in the back of a refrigerated lorry and the air inside begins to run out.
