THE MELTING FAMILY
WORLD PREMIERE Nicole Groton’s candidly personal film chronicles the episodes that led a single nuclear unit to grow exponentially through seven divorces and remarriages, becoming a revealing portrait of modern-day families. Home videos anchor the filmmaker’s memories of a complex childhood, while family members deconstruct 20 years of romances, adulteries, births and unexpected deaths, and their profound impact on the extended clan. The Melting Family is a generous, insightful project that challenges conventional views of the “broken family.”
This screening is co-presented with New York Women in Film and Television.
