Nothing Special

Nothing Special

A filmmaker and a moviegoer hook up. Their ideas of cinematic romance are put to the test, making their one-night stand surprisingly emotional.

Mikko Makela

Mikko Makela is a Finnish-British writer/director based in London, named by IndieWire as an LGBTQ Filmmakers on the Rise in 2019.
