POSTPANIC PICTURES presents







a film by RICHARD GORODECKY

SYNOPSIS


Paul has an attitude. He’s the kid you cross the road to avoid. The no-hoper you pray your children never become. But there’s more to Paul than meets the eye or the ear. A side that he only finds when he’s truly lost.

Little Shit is a child’s journey to discover his and London’s hidden nature.


“The best short films are like 7” singles - storytelling condensed into a quick-fire snapshot of communication. And Little Shit is very much a hit.” 

Colm McAuliffe, Film Curator




“Quietly lyrical, Little Shit finds beauty and wonder amid austere tower blocks.”


Don O’Mahoney, Head of Programming, Cork Film Festival




DIRECTORS STATEMENT



I grew up in a fairly rough part of London. People generally weren’t bad, but morality was shaped by circumstance and experience rather than a sense of right and wrong. It was hard to find positive role models, and it was all too easy – in fact almost inevitable – to walk on the wrong path. I was lucky, but a lot of my friends weren’t.

We label and dismiss so many kids who, partly because of this pigeonholing, have no opportunity to be anything but how we imagine them to be. In Little Shit I wanted to show the child beyond our preconceptions.
