Synopsis

After a 25-year absence, director John Maringouin returns from Hollywood to Terrytown, Louisiana. There, he is placed in the center of an emotional battle between his estranged father, who once tried to kill his son under the influence of drugs, and his self-destructive common-law wife.

Our take

Early 2000s digital home video meets Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? in this shocking and darkly funny debut from John Maringouin. Newly restored, Running Stumbled’s lo-fi images capture the director’s own family, revealing complicated truths about fatherhood, drug abuse, and poverty in America.
