US. A FAMILY ALBUM

Written & directed by NATALIA BABINSKI
Story by HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH
Produced by MARTA HARASYMOWICZ

In a simple, beautiful short film by Natalia Babinski based on a story by Heather Hollingsworth, the audience watches a collage of family photos mixed with home movies
documenting the growth of two children. [...] Us. A Family Album is deceptively familiar.

Since their invention, amateur cameras have been used to document family life. In the shaky footage of candle-blowing, lawn-watering, a new car, or a family vacation we rediscover our lives, reach new conclusions about the way we live, and glimpse what is most intangible: time. In Us. A Family Album, we reexamine those familiar images to tell a story that proves that all family and all love is equal.
