Jake Zalutsky + Nick Santore
51st Chicago International Film Festival (Official Selection), 2015 Vimeo Staff Pick
A quiet exploration of a father and son who share a name, Nick Santore, but have drifted apart. The son (26) visits Arizona to catch up with his dad (54) and it becomes a sneakily poignant documentary about the passage of time and the bad habits we grow into or can’t escape from. By tactfully recording a meeting between a father and his grown-up son, this short documentary crafts a complex, elusive portrait of an unbreakable family bond.
