Noor wants to be a man. He doesn’t belong anymore to the Khusras, Pakistan’s transgender community. And he is definitely done with the love story he had with one of them, that had drastically changed his life. Now, he is doing a man’s job in a Truck Decoration Center and he made up his mind: he will find a girl who will accept him as he is…

“Splendor of frames and lights, captivating documentary integration, magnificent presence of the main actor”
Sandrine Marques – Le Monde

“Images of an exceptional beauty, a rare visual force emanating from faces, landscapes, interiors, the characters’
gestures as well as from lights”
Jean-Michel Frodon – Slate

“Both realistic and dreamlike, the film’s simplicity is deeply moving, it clings to love like a light reflection on the ideal lake’s clear water”
Laurent Salgues et Oriol Canals – lacid.org
“The images are never picture-postcard pretty, but maintain a feeling of docu realism in tune with the non-pro thesps.”
Alissa Simon – Variety

Morning is Broken

Morning is Broken tells the story of Sam (Matthew Tennyson) a student still struggling to come to terms with his sexuality. Sam meets Nick (Nigel Allen) at his brother’s wedding and, feeling an instant connection, they flee the party in the early hours. Once out in the morning light, things start to unravel as Sam struggles to come to terms with his feelings. Morning is Broken is about growing up and learning who you are and captures the drama of youth struggling with identity.


Morning is Broken was chosen by the British Film Institute to screen as part of BFI Flare, one of the world’s leading LGBT film festivals. It was subsequently selected by the British Council as part of a global showcase of LGBT short films, and was screened as part of the 5 Films 4 Freedom programme in over 55 countries.
