Watch: ‘A Family Portrait’ is a Brilliant Animated Exploration of a Closet Full of Skeletons

By  · Published on August 30th, 2012

Why Watch? Sparse, biting and jaw-dropping, this excellent work from Joseph Pierce echoes Plymptonian greatness both in its style and insanity.

With a photographer on hand, things that should stay buried are revealed for one unfortunate family. It’s hard to tell whether the look or the storytelling is more surreal.

What will it cost you? Only 5 minutes.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
