YOU HANDSOME DOG (DON’T YOU EVER DIE), 9min., USA

My grandfather, Tom Watkins, is a 90-year-old harmonica player who lives in a retirement home in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2016, I interviewed him to get his thoughts about the U.S. Presidential elections. When I finally got around to editing the footage in 2020, I found a different story altogether.
