My Dead Dad's Porno Tapes

2018 | Documentary | Short Film


Pretty good, but the weird title is kinda misleading!

A short documentary that follows director Charlie Tyrell as he tries to uncover a better understanding of his deceased father through the random objects he inherited, including a pile of VHS dirty movies.

When you see the title, "My Dead Dad's Porno Tapes", you might think this short documentary is about... well, someone's deceased father's pornography tapes. However, that's hardly what this film is about. It is about a deceased father, though. Specifically the director's deceased father. I kinda wonder why the title was chosen. To get people's attention? If that's the case, I think it will certainly get people's attention.

Directed by Charlie Tyrell
Star: David Wain
