Midsummer Boulevard
When the strikingly confident Sapphire Jones emerges from the Milton Keynes railway station, pauses for an e-cigarette and meets the loitering Leon Magritte, it sets off a chain of events that strips away the layers of the planned city to reveal something dark and primal lurking beneath.

Set against the unique features of Milton Keynes—its grid road, concrete cows and astrologically aligned main thoroughfare—Midsummer Boulevard is equal parts film noir, black comedy and cult murder mystery—with the unwitting Leon Magritte as the intended victim.

Directed by Samuel Dore
Starring Grant Kempster, Carly Halse, Anna Diego
Running time 23 minutes
