After generating buzz out of the Toronto Film Festival,Boogaloo And Graham finds itself as one of the five Oscar-nominated live shorts. It also won a BAFTA trophy for best British short film. Boogaloo And Graham follows Jamesy (Riley Hamilton) and Malachy (Aaron Lynch) in 1978 Belfast, Northern Ireland who find pets in the two baby chicks that their soft-hearted father brings home. They nuture the pets into chickens, and well, that bothers Mum. The short, directed by Michael Lennox and written by Ronan Blaney, is based on the writer’s childhood experience.
As part of the short’s awards campaign, Hamilton, in this video, reached out to President Barack Obama, telling POTUS that he wants to visit America and show the commander in chief Boogaloo And Graham.
