The Family I Had
What begins as a seemingly isolated incident of a 13-year-old boy's shocking murder of his 4-year-old sister slowly dissolves into an illuminating study of a family fraught with mental illness, intra-family violence, addiction, love and fear. Through this family we gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of forgiveness.
Executive Produced by Motto Pictures and Dogwoof, The Family I Had participated at TFI Network and was one of 5 films selected to workshop at The Camden/TFI Documentary Retreat presented by CNN Films. This film also marks our second collaboration with editor (and friend) Tina Grapenthin.
