Simon Flory’s poetry film, Paper Thin Lines, documents a rural Texas family’s day like a home movie of shared memories we can all recall when-and if-we want to, finding common ground and community in today’s divided America. The film follows a family with 7 kids, 5 of which are adopted, through a day at home while they cook, play music, and play outdoors as a narrator (who sometimes appears as a shadow) recites the poem, “Paper Thin Lines”- “There’s a long paper thin line that stretches from here to there, through time and space and where I’ve been, what only I have seen… Why do I remain blissfully ignorant to this line, this gift I can unwrap and find new surprises?”
