The Backbrace

Unknown Premiere

USA | 6 MINUTES | English |



Puberty is embarrassing, particularly if you're a teenage boy with scoliosis and your parents force you to wear a backbrace. This lovably awkward, autobiographical short is brought to you by husband and wife team Carolyn and Andy London.


Directed by Frazer Pennebaker, Andy London, Ishai Setton, and Carolyn London
