Short Film | 09:00 | 2019
directed by Christopher McGill



Ayo has led an undocumented life in the UK since fleeing Africa, where he lost his partner to homophobic violence. Caught by the system, he is offered the chance to legalise his status — if he can provide the Home Office with evidence that he is a homosexual. Hoping to prove his orientation one club selfie at a time, Ayo soon relives the trauma and anxiety of his past.

Inspired by real-life accounts of persecution from African LGBT asylum seekers, Crypsis received a warm welcome at the BFI Flare Film Festival in London, as well as the Scottish Queer International Film Festival.
