How To Fold a Fitted Sheet

Comedy, 8 min 46 sec

Bellamy’s having a bad day. Watch her make it worse

 

If you’ve ever spent time on hold with a customer service agent (who hasn’t!) you’ll appreciate the finely observed comic and romantic meanderings

Normally I don’t spend a great deal of time watching shorts, preferring to delve into a meaty feature. However I was pleasantly surprised by this snug offering from New York based queer director Tony Clemente Jr.

It’s a low-budget, indie queer comedy which follows British redhead Bellamy as she faces being deported from the US after her visa isn’t renewed.

It opens with some lush beach scenes between Bellamy, (May Kelly) and her girlfriend, (a poised performance by African American actress Franchesca Davis). Filmed in and around Montauk and NYC, this is the second short from director Clemente, Jr, following on from his  first film, HOPELESSLY, a queer tale of polyamory, which won Best Comedy at Splice Film Festival.

The background to this Anglo American film project began in Manchester, a few years ago when writer/director Tony Clemente Jr and lead actress May Kelly met. The two instantly clicked and, despite living on opposite sides of the Atlantic, decided to make a film together. Based on May’s life, the film is a quirky and humorous snapshot of a Brit girl navigating bureaucracy and relationships abroad while trying to battle the elastic of a fitted sheet. If you’ve ever spent time on hold with a customer service agent (who hasn’t!) you’ll appreciate the finely observed comic and romantic meanderings of Bellamy, played by the very capable Kelly.

The film looks and sounds great, with music by Matias Torres Solé adding depth to the overall production. It raised more than a few laughs, and is well worth the 8 minutes of screen time. Recommended.
