Through relationships with our families, we can ultimately learn about love, trust, and friendship, yet in some cases reflecting on childhood and familial relationships can bring up past traumas and insecurities. This group of films shows that for the most part, many people's family experiences land somewhere between the two. In unpacking these relationships, we can discover who we are, and decide who we want to be. Dealing with content including aging, the struggles of parenting, and separation, these filmmakers tackle difficult issues through narrative filmmaking.
