This week’s short film pick is Jacob Fallon‘s Homebody, a story about a young woman who loses her job and is forced to move back home- the only hitch is she doesn’t tell her mom she’s there.
This short is being presented at this season’s Fandependent Film Festival where it’s competing for a $1000 prize, so check it out below and if you dig it like I did, throw a vote its way.
Jessie, a 29 year old failure, is out of money, friends, and work. She’s too embarrassed to ask her mom to move home, but doesn’t have any other option so she does it in secrecy. Jessie spends her days masturbating and smoking weed and her nights moving stealthily from closet to closet, hiding from her mom and her recent series of failures. Through the slats of the closet doors, she gains access and insight into her mothers life, and comes to realize that she’s not the only one who needs help.
