I grew up a long, long time ago. In the sixties to be exact. A time that now
seems like some sort of aberration, or invasion of inspiring aliens because
there’s never been another time like it. A time of real snd substantive
change, a time of hope, a time of endless possibilities, all of our voices
mattered. Encased in that reality were families struggling with the domestic
or familial challenges of their households. Families like the one I grew up
in. The stories presented in “That Perfect Place” are a representation, a
musing , a meditation on the lives of the family I grew up a part of,
presented by its most challenged member. A member that may have been,
the most soulful, wisest and compassionate one of us all. Thank you for
allowing me to explore this, my passion project with you.
