The saddest boy in the world

The Saddest Boy in the World is a short film directed by Jamie Travis, which follows young Timothy Higgins as he reflects on the many reasons he is compelled to hang himself at his ninth birthday party. It has a clear influence by Wes Anderson films and a great production design. The Torontoist called the film “a miniature masterpiece”; Toronto Sun critic Bruce Kirkland called it “cruelly funny” and included director Jamie Travis in his list of revelations at the Toronto Film festival; and Sameer Vasta from BlogTO called it “hands-down the best short film I have ever seen.” The Saddest Boy in the World has now screened across Canada, the US, Europe and Australia, picking up awards and receiving consistently great reviews.
