Growing up doesn’t happen in a straight line. The Journey Home traces that crooked route through a young man’s relationship with his first adult magazine. Shot on 16 mm film, with original music and no dialogue, the short film conveys a vintage, timeless coming of age message.

Written and directed at the USC School of Cinema and Television by Elia Petridis in 2003.
