Blood of the Family Tree is an experimental animated film, composed of fourteen short, distinct pieces that are woven together as a whole that explore questions of connections, issues of inheritance, physical and cultural mores and traumas sited within the body. The film is a struggle to understand the past and its effect on the present. Can we escape our history? Probably not, but we can recognize it and make peace with it.
