Thy Father's Chair

A FILM BY: Antonio Tibaldi, Alex Lora

A chamber piece par excellence, THY FATHER'S CHAIR profiles aging twins Abraham and Shraga, forced to open their derelict Brooklyn apartment to professional cleaners. The crew turn out to be counselors of the higher order who seek to rescue the brothers from themselves. Both wry and warm-hearted, THY FATHER'S CHAIR has a clear-eyed appreciation for life’s contradictions.
