IT’S ALL IN THE FAMILY
DESCRIPTION: Leo Tolstoy wrote that “Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” Put the story of family—immediate or otherwise—on film, and you can be sure there will be conflicts, rivalries, redemption, love and fireworks. Come join us to discover four very different films that explore the meaning of family, and what makes each one unique, yet in many ways, similar to our own experiences.
- Sunflower – China (2005)
- Cherry Blossoms – Germany/Japan (2008)
- The Inheritance – Denmark (2003)
- Summer Hours – France (2008)
