Family by Don Palathara

Sony, a catholic man in his late twenties from rural central Kerala, comes across as a do-gooder and

a well-wisher at the first glimpse. However, lurking behind his public persona is a different character.

Even as some of his family members become aware of his deeds, they are silenced by the system,

which mindfully and actively protects men, their delinquencies, and secrets. The family thus

becomes a sturdy closet, where skeletons of the past are kept unknown and unseen by the world

outside. The film tries to understand how the family system operates like mafia when it comes to the

crimes from within.


The screening will be followed by a conversation.
