Short Film Spotlight: Lost Years

From Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Beltran, the new short film Lost Years tells the story of a young boy, Felix (Samuel Garcia), who after the death of his mother is sent to boarding school abroad. There, he meets Leo (Jack O’Neill), his roommate and a fellow student at the school.

The two soon begin a clandestine romantic relationship. The heartwarming love affair the film promises, however, is quickly shattered. A traumatic event soon occurs in which Felix is assaulted, and his relationship with Leo comes to an end.

This powerful 21-minute film examines the repercussions that sexual abuse can have in young people and the impact such violations have on their lives and the lives of those around them.

Lost Years is streaming now on Dekkoo. Check out the trailer below.
