Disjointed Custody: A Dysfunctional Short Film About Divorce
A short film about one divorce, one child, and a choice between two parents.
Inspired by the parenting divorce class required in the state of Utah, John Moyer conceived this idea as an absurd commentary on the selfish and thoughtless behavior of divorcing parents. "Here is a time when people are angry and bitter toward another human being," Moyer said. "And whatever those reasons, right or wrong, far too often the parents throw out reason and rationality and the kids experience an additional world of pain outside of just their parents breaking up. I wanted to make a short, to the point film that tells parents, if you are going to divorce, fine. But don't make it worse for you kids."
Serge loved the idea. "I really took to John's idea to use dark humor to frame this message around the whole concept of divorce and kids," Serge said. "It showcases the brutal selfishness of people, draws the viewer in, then delivers a serious punch to get a serious point across: think about what you do to your kids."
