Laurence Olivier award winner Michael Jibson (“Hamilton”) and Louis Ashbourne Serkis (“The Kid Who Would Be King”) lead the short drama “Path to Ecstasy,” alongside Laura Main (“Call the Midwife”), Tom Taylor (“The Dark Tower”), Georgia Pemberton (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”), Amir Wilson (“His Dark Materials”), Ken Christiansen (“It’s a Sin”) and Mimi Slinger (“Masters of the Air”).

The short, the second from Abdullah Khan after “Find the Light,” follows Adam (Serkis), a lost teen who over the course of one night, is abandoned by his alcoholic stepfather (Jibson) and spurred on a desperate search for human connection, within the same crowd he also wishes to escape from.

The film, which is produced by Lucas A. Ferrara and Khan under the Rosebud Films banner, has wrapped principal photography in London and is heading to film festivals later this year. Rosebud Films is developing multiple feature films projects, one of which is a psychological period piece focusing on the occult.
