"Is It Free?" Comedy short from UK (2014) reminds one of Reid Ewing's 2012 "It's Free" series; well, not much in life is really free!

Is It Free?” (2014), directed by Lauris Beinerts, at the Westminister Film School (UK), is a little comedy where Jack Hawkins plays a young man manipulating people who ask for a place to sit next to him in various venues. Everything does have a price. 

He also manipulates the price of a cup of tea.

The film reminds me of Reid Ewing’s 2012 tryptich “It’s Free”, “Free Fish”, and “I’m Free” as part of a “Reid-ing” series that was presented by Igigi, no longer available – again, looking at what in life is free.
