The Armoire

11 year-old Aaron Plays a game of Hide and Seek in which his friend Tony is never found. The mystery of their relationship-and of their queer attachment to the armoire in Aron’s bedroom-can only be revealed, it turns out, through hypnosis.

At once a comedy, a mystery and a melodrama, Jamie Travis’ The Armoire is the resounding finale to his Saddest Children in the World trilogy.

The Armoire, Jamie Travis’s final installment of his Saddest Children in the World trilogy, is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. This marks Jamie’s sixth film to be included in the TIFF lineup. The Armoire screens as part of Short Cuts Canada Programme 4.

TIFF has come to a close and The Armoire has been awarded a special mention by the Canadian film jury. Their official statement describes Jamie Travis as “an exciting filmmaker with an original voice and an exquisite vision.”

The award for Best Canadian Short went to Pedro Pires’ Danse Macabre.
