Black Dog

The OKRE Fund supported writer-director George Jaques and writer-actor Jamie Flatters to collaborate with lived experience experts for their debut feature film.

Black Dog is the debut feature film from two of Screen’s 2022 Stars of Tomorrow. While on a road trip North, two very different London teenagers must learn to deal with how traumatic events have shaped their young lives. Inspired by writer-director George Jaques’ and writer-actor Jamie Flatters’ childhoods and lived experience, Black Dog is billed as a highly personal road movie about grief, love, sexuality and friendship.
