​“Narcolepsy,” a psychological short film produced by Elon University students, was named “Best Psychological Thriller” at the 13th International Student Film Festival Hollywood, a competition for independent films by student filmmakers.

The film, written and directed by Jordan Roman ’15, tells the story of a high school student who has narcolepsy and begins to experience daytime hallucinations that pull from his nightmares. For a full list of “Narcolepsy” cast and crew, see below.
