Directed by Alan Berliner
The Family Album is a one-hour experimental documentary film utilizing a vast collection of rare 16mm home movies from the 1920s through the 1950s, that weaves into a composite lifetime, passing through the celebrations and struggles from childhood to adulthood, from innocence to experience. It is a universal yet intimate portrait of the American family, not scripted, not rehearsed, not immune to the conflicts and contradictions underlying family life and its rituals.
"...a great humanistic statement made out of found sources." - Roger Ebert
OFFICIAL SELECTION: Grand Jury Prize (Documentary) Sundance Film Festival
