Exam + Q&A with Stuart Hazeldine

A bleak dystopian future pits candidates against each other for the job opportunity of a lifetime. Shot in 35mm film with a claustrophobic style that complements the escalating tension in the narrative, the film successfully toys with established genre conventions. In this post-screening discussion, chaired by BFI Events Programmer Laura Adams, Hazeldine discusses the logic behind his choice of style, the distribution problems that plague the film industry and the methods he used to overcome them.
