Mind-altering and terrorizing, the new twelve-minute short film Class A is set in modern-day New York City… but the ultimate setting is another world entirely.
Class A follows three different LGBTQ addicts: Jenny (Krystal Joy Brown), Dan (Kieran Mulcare) and Brad (played by writer/director Cameron Moir). Throughout the film, these protagonists enter a strange new realm where they are made to directly interact with personified versions of their drugs of choice: Cocaine (Alexander Quiroga), Heroin (Pooya Mohseni) and Crystal Meth (Michael Cavadias).
Each drug depicted in the film not only have a representative actor, but its own particular landscape, into which the addicts enters and cannot escape until the after drugs leave their systems. Heroin is a vast, black eternal comb; Coke is a stark, white, fast moving space; and Crystal Meth, a red, steamy dungeon.
An accomplished film, television and stage actor, writer/director Cameron Moir makes his directorial debut with this short – and proves himself as a wildly inventive filmmaker. Class A is a strange and seductive feast for the eyes that packs a profound and sobering punch.
