Missed Call

Shot on an iPhone X, Missed Call explores my relationship with my teenage son, as we discuss how we’ll reconnect with his father, who’s been absent for a decade. How do you reconnect with a father who’s been gone for so long…what do you say, what do you text? Missed Call begins with the last message he sent in 2006 and ends with the first call to him over a decade later. The film explores the many ways in which our lives are lived and archived via the phones we hold so close.

Missed Call was the first commissioned short film to be shot on the iPhone X and was nominated for The Best UK Short Award at Open City Documentary Festival. Missed Call was in competition at This is England film festival in Rouen and also won the Social Media Short Award at the 2018 AHRC Research in Film Awards. Missed Call was also featured in The Conversation, The Sunday Times and Broadcast magazine.

Recently my son and I were Interviewed by Charlene White from ITV news on winning the Best Social Media Short at the Arts and Humanities Council, Research in Film Awards
