Watch First-Ever Sundance London Short Film Competition Winner 'Extranjero'

North London's Daniel Lumb and Crinan Campbell directed the five-minute experimental film "Extranjero" (video below) and took home the first-ever Sundance London's Short Film Competition.   Their short adopts an unusual perspective on immigration as it traces a "refugee trying to run from his past as well as the confusion in his own mind."  Lumb and Campbell shot the film in just two days.

In addition to "Extranjero," finalists for the competition included Ben Williams's "Bonsai", Scott Ward's "Two Doors Down," Sam Gould's "The Story of Our Times," and  Ian Waldron Mantgani "This Film Was Shot on Digital."
