Short Film Profile

Broken Cycle

After being chased by two bullies who destroyed his bike, Ahmad searches for safety and acceptance with the neighborhood thugs who came to his rescue. Soon, their continued protection comes at a price.

Film notes

The film's cast is mostly comprised of non-actors. After months of searching and hundreds of auditions, Clifton found Julien Oblette, a fifteen year old boy originally from Bordeaux, France to play the lead character Ahmad. Despite the boy's lack of acting experience, Julien had the right personality for the part. Clifton's last film, Breakaway, has screened at numerous film festivals.
