#screensparks:oscar winning short stutterer now available online

Irish writer/director Ben Cleary’s debut short ‘Stutterer” can now be watched online. The film is embedded below and is also available for viewing on the New Yorker magazine’s Screening Room.

The film is about a young man with a stutter who must overcome his condition in order to connect with a girl he met online. Ben’s short struggled to find a berth in major film festivals before it was nominated and eventually won the Academy Award for Best Live Short.

Ben is currently writing his first feature.
