In Case You Want to See A Great Short Film Directed by Riz Ahmed: Daytimer

I’ve been bringing up the name Riz Ahmed quite a bit lately and for good reason.  I’m predicting this guy becomes a huge star (if he’s not already).   While his parts in film and movies may be somewhat small so far (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Girls)  he’s quickly becoming an in demand actor.  And after his rap battle performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden we all know that if acting doesn’t work out he’s got serious rapping skills.

But did you know that Riz Ahmed is also a talented director?  He wrote and directed a short film called Daytimer that was an official selection at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.   Here’s a great quote about the film from Rob Munday

Unpolished, genuine and relatable (Daytimer is set in the UK in the late 90’s — the same time and place I was also trying to “find myself”), Ahmed’s 16-minute short takes its viewers on a voyage of self-discovery as its young protagonist Naseem realizes there might be more important things in life than having fun.

The movie in a nutshell is about a kid who skips school to go a daytime rave.
