Family Portrait – Iris Prize Shorts 10

Family dynamics change and evolve in unexpected ways in this final programme of Iris Prize shorts

A single father’s journey of discovery, a young gay couple’s unorthodox “adoption”, romance blossoming in a nursing home, and a young boy’s search for acceptance and love. This final programme of international shorts features four very different takes on family: What it means to care for or be cared for by those closest to us, and how the very definition of family can mean different things to different people.
