Nightstand - Dir. Charlie Parham

Nightstand - Dir. Charlie Parham


Nightstand stages the destructive relationship between two men over three consecutive nights - one is gay, lost and adolescent, the other is married to a woman and middle-aged. The cathartic and tender savagings of their affair unravel uniquely in the most under-represented corners of London nightlife.



Nightstand has been distributed by Peccadillo as part of their short film collection "Boys On Film 15: Time & Tied" and showcased in 71 cinemas around the U.K. as part of their "Pout Festival." Nightstand is currently available to buy online at Amazon, iTunes and Vimeo and in stores including The BFI Shop, Fopp and Gay is the Word.
