Finding Franklin

DIRECTOR: Alex Bohs

This simply gorgeous short about death, nostalgia, and digging through old family memories is hauntingly touching, and truly tender. Returning to the family home upon the death of her grandfather, young Violet finds someone from the past: a mysterious man named Franklin. Violet investigates deeper, and the film delicately weaves old and recreated footage, set to a wonderful soundtrack, to recount the hidden life her grandfather had left clues for her to find.
