Disappointed Dad Who Quits Family Is Viddsee Shortee Oct 2014



Our collection of films have grown with support of our friends, partners and viewers over the two years.

The growth isn’t just about the numbers. We can now see a very nuance but textured glimpse into Asia: it’s stories, perspectives and values.

Stories about family and sacrifice is a theme that is very universal and timeless, appealing to viewers across geographies and age groups.


‘Closer Apart’ by Jason Lee reflects the spirit of these times. It tells the story about of a father who quits on his family when he is unable to find relevance in the family’s day to day life.

It’s a well-told but not unheard of story: middle-class anxieties of rising household expenses, time and attention-starved career climbers, and the stresses of modern living.
