I once believed that if you want to find a fossil, you must first dig a hole.
I also believed that if you want to start talking to an estranged parent, you should write them some lines.
I was wrong about both of these assumptions.
My folks raised me as an evangelical,
but I grew up and left the faith.
In a fiction short, I wrote a reconciliation.
In reality, Dad took umbrage.
I pushed on...
...expanding my short into a feature script.
Then, despite my resistance,
To my FAMILY.
Determined to understand how Dad justifies his beliefs, I film with him
but how we treat each other.
But when I film him at home, I realize our divide is not about what we believe,

sort through footage and field notes.
