“Family,” a broadly defined term, is everything in our city. Many extended families live under the same roof, creating a distinct need for the phrase “single family home.” Featuring AUGUST, DRIFTING, IN FRANCE MICHELLE IS A MAN’S NAME, IN SUDDEN DARKNESS, and POND, each film in this block takes a look at “single family” dynamics and relationships of different sorts.

Runtime: 69 minutes
