Enjoy directed by Saul Abraham
With everyone experiencing the worldwide pandemic together, director Saul Abraham felt it was a good time to create a short film about mental health amongst men in his short film Enjoy.
The film explores the issues of masculinity, men’s mental health, and how societal stereotypes surrounding depression in men manifest themselves across different generations.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Progressive muscle relaxation, Lycra, spoken word. As Michael seeks novel ways to halt his spiraling depression, a moment of hope arrives via an unexpected source.
The short film stars Himesh Patel (Yesterday, Tenet), and Maddy Hill (Eastenders, Casualty). Saul Abraham directed the short film that was written by Callum Cameron. Other cast members are Sara Stewart, Jonathan Aris, Matt Devitt, and Tom Sweet.
