"In Memory Of My Father"
Produced and Directed by Christopher Jaymes

"In Memory Of My Father is a day-in-the-death of three brothers' father, a retired film producer, once legendary, now decrepit. As the siblings host their father's wake (which quickly evolves into a traditionally self-obsessed Hollywood party) their struggles, and failings, to be different from their selfish father are exposed. A brutally honest film, spotlighting a generation of children lacking the tools necessary to carry out emotionally-based actions in an adult-like manner.
