Family Albumto top

Every family is its own universe. Although it has a few documentaries with almost literary elements of drama, this mostly fictional section includes all kinds of families: a separated couple fighting for their children (Everybody in Our Family), sick parents who affect the rest of the clan (Best Intentions, Home for the Weekend), a father with suicidal tendencies (El huaso), daughters who learn how to cook because their parents are working (Los días), or the maid who has to stay indifferent to the problems of their employers (Totem). And sometimes, families are disintegrated, so cinema tries to somehow reunite them, like the director of the Chilean documentary Hija does, when she sets out to find her biological father. In every case, families are an environment for conflict and evocation, an Utopian place or a burrow they need to escape from.
