Family Matters


Tender and haunting observations examining our familial ties and how they impact us.

Parenthood can be a splendid thing. A journey of sacrifice and unconditional love. Glimpse intimate vignettes of motherhood and fatherhood, fleeting moments of connection, the struggle couples experience in the journey to conceive, and the often times invisible labour that accompanies caring for others. Still, Black parents the world over, also contend with the untimely deaths of their children due to structural racism and thus, are forced to contend with navigating criminal justice systems while experiencing deep grief. In a broader perspective, we also look at dark family secrets, the power (or lack thereof) in lineage, and the fears we face as our caregivers age.
