11/12/2018

Sockumentary

Location: Los Angeles

Type: Student Films

Sockumentary is a comedy mockumentary that follows the stories of two families. One family, Marjorie (mother) and David (high school aged son), are somewhat reclusive lower-middle class family that are obsessed with socks. This is to due to the fact that they believe that if they ever go sockless for more than a couple minutes, they will catch hypothermia and die. The other family, Mary (mom) and Harry (again a high school aged son) are a much more well off religious extremist family, much like a classier (and less controversal) Westborough Baptist Church type family. They are religiously opposed to socks, furthermore, Harry, keeps on having visions from God to destroy the other sock loving family. The two boys are water polo players and the inciting incident takes place at a public swimming pool during a water polo game, so please know how to swim.
