Closed Visit (2017)
Paul hasn't seen his son in five months since the divorce, the only form of contact he is allowed is through a weekly video call. Closed Visit is a modern day story of technology acting as both a coping mechanism and a source of pain.
Using the messages of single fathers on internet forums and both the director’s own experiences of being a single parent child, this animation explores isolation, separation and loss.
