Household: Four Stories of Kinship and Curiosity

With filmmaker Craig Saddlemire in attendance!

An extended refugee family from Somalia, an interracial same-sex couple, a single mother in a housing cooperative, and a mother of six who has fostered nearly 50 children in her lifetime… None of these families have ever met each other before, but at the invitation of a mutual friend and videomaker, that will soon change. Where through an inventive storytelling structure, a member of each household is given the chance to narrate what they see in another. Here, each character-narrator changes themselves based upon what they see and learn, creating a collage of viewpoints rather a traditional moral. Through food, finances, and sibling disputes, Household presents an ever-shifting perspective on the enduring bonds of kinship.

Presented in partnership with Maine Public Broadcasting Network. MPBN partners with the Maine Film Center to promote Maine and regional films and will be featuring Household in their Community Films series. MPBN Members will receive $2 off the price of admission with proof of membership!
