Event Details

Tyler, a young aspiring filmmaker, uses old technology to create films that he shows in his community while exploring his dreams of becoming a famous filmmaker. Tyler struggles with his relationship with his father, and it is clear there are parts of his family history he is not aware of. While out filming, Tyler meets an older teenager, who he has never seen before, but who encourages him to make his latest film. Timelines blur and the old camera Tyler uses creates visual shifts that tell stories of Tyler’s life that he unravels through the making of his most personal film.
