Director to watch Bola Ogun is set to debut her short comedy titled Are We Good Parents this year at SXSW.  The comedy revolves around Lauren and Bill, who have always assumed their daughter was gay, in the same way that most parents assume their child is straight (until given notice).

The short will make it’s debut at the festival on Saturday, March 10th.

Are We Good Parents? stars Tracie Thoms, Sean Maguire, and Gabrielle Skye Goodman. The screenplay is written by Hailey Chavez from a story by Ogun. Produced by Ogun and Tatiana Olsak. Behind the scenes, Ogun collaborated with cinematographer Ludovica Isidori, editor Meaghan Wilbur, production designer Anelisa Torruella, and sound designer Marissa Quintana.
