Even though the medium of film enabled people to affordably document themselves and their families as early as 1932, with the invention of the 8mm format, it wasnt until the 1970s that the idea of autobiographical family filmmaking began to take root outside of the avant-garde. Groundbreaking documentary shorts like Martha Coolidges David: Off and On (1972) and Martin Scorseses Italianamerican (1974) brought directors family members in front of the camera for the first time, not just for personal record-keeping, but public consumption. Fifty years later, the family film is fully established as a branch of nonfiction filmmaking, one thats been around long enough to have its own set of rules and clichés. This series gathers together eight efforts that exemplify the adventurousness of the subgenre as it originally developed: films that take formal, conceptual, and ethical risks in their explorations of the ties that bind.
