Pictured above: Home When You Return (2021) by Carl Elsaesser
The home movie as myth, as legend, as lost document, never completely knowable. While exploring occlusions and omissions and embodying domestic and social histories oft unspoken, the films in this program roll like waves, presenting hesitant reflections on lineage, on generational continuity and rupture, on recovered memories. New forms of family are brought into being as previous older forms are subjected to rumination and contemplation. Fragmentary memories drift though shocking and oblique intimacies.
