SECRET LIVES OF OUR PARENTS

Coming Soon!

Secret Lives of Our Parents is Andrew Jorgensen's forthcoming

MFA Thesis Project.

Chuck and Annie, a brother and sister, are left alone one rainy night and decide to play a game.

After the discovery of a dusty old photo album of their parents travels from before they were born, Chuck and Annie begin to fantasize and act out the heroic adventures their parents must have been on when the pictures were taken.

From each photograph we learn Chuck and Annie's parents are not who we thought they were.

---

Secret Lives of Our Parents is a short film that is made in direct response to Susan Sontag's On Photography, and equally is a love letter to the escapist adventure films of Andrew's Childhood

The film is an exploration of the coming of age moment we all have as children when we discover our parents are not the perfect people we think they are.
