Where Were You Born

Runtime: 3 mins 19 sec
Directors:  Matt Rogers

What is your earliest memory? How vivid are the details? For some, it is a sound, a laugh, maybe a face. What would you give to go back even further and experience some of the earliest days of your childhood? Knowing what you do now, and where life would eventually take you, imagine what that bittersweet insight would be worth.

This experimental short examines the fleeting nature of memory, through a child’s last days in his first home.
