Here's a short horror film that gets under the skin in more ways than one. At a teen mental health clinic, Jonah proudly refuses to socialize with the other patients — until he gets a new roommate, one whom he gradually feels a connection to. But why doesn't Jonah's new roommate ever sleep?

The Last Time I Saw Richard was written and directed Nicholas Verso and funded by Screen Australia's Springboard programme. Although a mental hospital is a familiar setting for supernatural films, this one goes in a slightly different direction, one that focuses in on the relationship between its two lead characters. It is a moody and haunting watch.
