Why Watch? Because we all have questions for those who came before us.
Doug Karr is the grandson of controversial journalist and businessman David Karr, but he never got to meet him. Since his grandfather was so strangely famous, he has some questions.
This short sizzles with a sort of kinetic energy while it plays around with different styles. Doors of family kitchens open up into autopsy rooms, picture albums turn into to living live-action scenes, and it’s all done with a sleekness that seems effortlessly cool even if all of the questions Doug wants to ask will never get an answer.
It’s a film that delivers mystery more than anything else, but it’s done brilliantly, and (oddly enough) intimately. How do you reconcile a man who’s equal parts famous bizarre figure and father to your father?
What does it cost? Just 7 minutes of your time.
