Emily is nervous about meeting her husband Wilson’s family for the first time at their annual Independence Day gathering. Having eloped, she is concerned that the family will never accept her as one of their own. But Wilson has a plan to bring her into the fold — competing in the family’s annual (if ridiculous) tradition of throwing balls at a target object, a barely-recognizable variation of bocce.
After producing only one short film each year in 2013 and 2014, Tohubohu returned to the 48 Hour Film Project with a vengeance in 2015 with “Codependence Day” — an offbeat interpretation of the traditional “holiday film.” The film was created entirely between May 1st through the 3rd, 2015, and premiered at the AFI Silver Theatre on Friday, May 8th.
