Not so empty nest

You’ve had the house to yourselves but now your grown-up kids are back to stay. And a lot has changed.

According to Statistics Canada, significantly more young adults now live with their parents than did in 1981. Makin’ Movies Inc. and the National Film Board of Canada, in association with TVO and Telefilm Canada, are developing Running for Cover, a one-hour documentary that will explore the challenges and rewards of a shared household as families learn to live together again.

Genie-award winning director Maureen Judge is looking for families “willing to open themselves up and take us on an emotional journey as they grapple with the unfamiliar reality of living together once again.” Filming begins this fall. If you’d like to participate, please contact Makin’ Movies Inc. at (416) 516-1833.
