Presents: We Grew Up Here (2014)
Director: Kevin Pickman
Plot: An independent feature film about a musician
named Liam who is struggling to cope with the split from his lover and
muse. He begins to suspect his past is being erased in this unnerving
film starring members of the Chicago band Paper Thick Walls. As songs
Liam and Lauren recorded together disappear from tapes and mutual
friends deny they know him, Liam hits the road on a desperate journey
to prove to himself and everyone else he's not insane--that the life
they built together, and that he threw away, was real.

This film exists because of the generosity of the crowd-funding community at Kickstarter and was named an Indiewire Project of the Month. The film features music by Paper Thick Walls and a score by Luke Ramus. "We Grew Up Here" was created by 15 in the Dark, a Chicago-based filmmaking collective.
