My Dead Dad's Porno Tapes

My Dead Dad's Porno Tapes

In My Dead Dad’s Porno Tapes director Charlie Tyrell attempts to uncover a deeper understanding of his deceased father by examining his posthumous possessions.
Narrated by David Wain (dir. Director of Wet Hot American Summer), Tyrell presents a unique lens on family relationships and their challenges.
Told through a combination of stop-motion animation, home movies and recorded phone calls, this documentary short offers a window into the complexity of family relationships and the things we leave behind.
