My Old School

Jono McLeod
United Kingdom
 - 2022

In 1993, 16-year-old Brandon Lee enrolled at Bearsden Academy, a secondary school in a well-to-do suburb of Glasgow, Scotland. What followed over the next two years would become the stuff of legend. Brandon had been privately tutored in Canada while he accompanied his mother, an opera diva, on tour before her tragic death. The preternaturally bright student surprised teachers by blazing toward his goal of entering medical school, displaying a wealth of knowledge beyond his years. But then his unbelievable secret was revealed.

Jono McLeod

He began his career as an onscreen reporter for Scottish TV news before moving behind the camera at BBC Scotland. He’s since directed documentaries and factual programming for every major UK TV network. His debut short film, ‘Being Stavros’ (2014), was a hit with audiences at scores of major gay film festivals including Los Angeles Outfest, San Francisco Frameline and Moscow Side by Side. ‘My Old School’ is his first feature film.
