“The Story” is a charming short film starring Maggie, Lisa, and Matt Groening (who would go on to create The Simpsons), that was shot by their father Homer in 1969. In the film Lisa recounts an adventure that she and Matt have in the woods. Homer Groening worked in advertising but found time to make cartoons, write stories with his children, and make curious absurdist short films (see below). Matt talks about “The Story” and how he was influenced by Homer in this 2012 interview with Smithsonian Magazine. “The Story” can be purchased on DVD from A/V Geeks.
