About the Programme

What is family, and how do we tell those stories to each other? How are portraits drawn from our encounters with one another, especially when captured in close quarters? Featuring works from seven award-winning filmmakers, this thematic programme offers multiple readings of familial bonds and examines the entanglement between truth, belief, and fiction. Ranging from direct observational documentaries to a narrative film a decade in the making, the films of ‘Unseen Bonds: Family Portraits’ complicate the relationship between camera, filmmaker, subject, and viewer—highlighting how cinema could help bring universal resonance to such personal stories.
