MY DEAD DAD'S PORNO TAPES (2018)
13min

Director - Charlie Tyrell
Narrator - David Wain
Producers - Julie Baldassi, Josh Polon

"Prompted by his father's death, director Charlie Tyrell pursues a deeper understanding of his emotionally-distant father in this documentary short by starting with what he left behind: a rather kitsch collection of vhs porno tapes. Narrated by David Wain and told through a hybrid of stop-motion animation, home movies, and recorded phone calls, Tyrell presents an indiscriminate look into one's material possessions as a way of understanding the complex nature of family relationships and their challenges." - New York Times Op-Docs
