His Sons Are Texting During Dinner. Dad’s Reaction? PRICELESS! 'Pass The Salt'
By Barbara Diamond
This short film is perfect for today’s tricky combination of family and technology, creating the need for real-time communication vs. the desire to participate in social media.
Created by a writer and filmmaker named Matthew Abeler, “Pass The Salt” is a “video short about technology and relationships… don’t text at the table kiddos!” as Matthew says. The hilarious yet poignant film won the Best Comedy Award at the 2014 Five16 Film Festival, and people all over the world have related to its humor and its message.
When his sons are too busy texting on their cell phones at the dinner table to engage in actual conversation, Dad’s reaction is simply perfect. Just watch… you’ll see what I mean :)
