Watch a teenager riff poetic about geometry in Circles

This improvised short from MGMT music video director Sam Fleischner is all about the unusual beauty of everything round

For his upcoming feature film Stand Clear of the Closing Doors (out in cinemas next week), director Sam Fleischner created this initial character study and audition film with Jesus Sanchez, the young actor who ended up playing the main role in his feature. Sanchez goes off the cuff in this improvised monologue, which takes in everything from his love of circles to trainers and the anxieties of starting high school.
