International Shorts 2: Family Affairs

  • 94 mins

By turns treasured and resented, families provide fertile ground for the most extreme of human emotions.

These international shorts take a look at the complicated quality of clan relations. A family is forced to evacuate their home; a man moves his children cross country to start a new life; a frustrated mother plans to run away to Mexico; a boy is obsessed with getting a pet rabbit and a teenage girl is tipped over the edge by her overbearing mother.
