A Thief, A Kid and A Killer
Directed by Nathan Adolfson
In a failed diamond heist, two hopeless thieves hide out in an apartment taking a ten-year-old boy hostage. With a gang of dirty police closing in on them each thief must decide what lengths he will take to survive–a decision that will change the boy’s life forever.
Nathan Adolfson received his MFA in film directing at the UCLA film school in 2008. His student films were televised and screened locally and internationally, most notably as part of the Cannes Film Festival’s American Pavilion program highlighting new faces in American cinema. While still a student he signed with John Orlando, at the time a manager at Circle of Confusion. With a desire to create more personal films and explore the growing Asian markets Nathan developed his next project, Model American, with the Korean Film Council, which received the organization’s highest writing award. Nathan also works in commercials and in 2012 found himself in Manila, Philippines producing a Nike commercial featuring Manny Pacquiao. In Manila, he discovered an exciting and fresh local filmmaking scene wanting to push its works to broader audiences and genres. Believing he could bring a fresh perspective on storytelling and filmmaking he wrote A Thief, A Kid & A Killer.
