(Dir. JON MAX SPATZ | UK | 2017 | 15m)

A police officer confronts his worst fears as father when called to what he epxects to be a routine domestic disturbance; instead finding the body of a murdered man and the diary of a young girl who appears to be missing…

WHEN I GROW UP... is the portrait of a frail and fraught middle-aged main struggling to come to terms with the mistakes of his past, dressed up as a routine police procedural thriller - if my first film [BELLE] was for my mother, WHEN I GROW UP... is for my father, who who has struggled with the effects of alcoholism for most of his life." 

– Jon Max Spatz, Writer-Director
