A Family tells the story of a lonely man who employs actors to play his family.

Armed with a video camera and his scripts he decides to directs his life. But he is a demanding director, and his actors aren’t always compliant, and the best scripted plans don’t necessarily unfold as intended. But his fake sister has her own plans…


Shot in the Ukraine, with a local cast and an Australian crew, first time feature director Jayden Stevens’s A Family is a strange, quasi-comedy in which the reality, or the video-documented fictional-realism, of family and social relations becomes increasingly off-kilter.
