Writer-Director Julian Breece makes a striking debut with THE YOUNG & EVIL, a dramatic short about a defiantly promiscuous young man who sets out to contract the HIV virus. Referencing the controversial 1930s novel of the same title, THE YOUNG & EVIL provides a chilling lens into how anxiety, faithlessness and longing miscolor the need for human connection.
Newcomer Vaughn Lowery stakes claim as this year's young actor to watch with his complex and searing portrayal of a steel-eyed rebel who finds eros in self-destruction.
Shot in South Central Los Angeles by veteran cinematographer Carl Bartels, THE YOUNG & EVIL presents a unique and seductively stylish vision. Pulsing with atmosphere and authenticity, the film undulates between severe urban grit and haunting metaphor. With Breece's protagonist as our guide, we're ushered into a labyrinthine world of shadows, where touch equals salvation.
