La Famille - ein Nachmittag fürs ganze Leben (La Famille - one afternoon for the whole life)

2017 - docudrama short 37'

Jean Pierre V. is only 10 years old when he stumbles upon the family secret for the first time. What follows are years of research, seeking to understand the truth about his own family history as well as the truth about his own roots.
La Famille depicts the real historical events between 1914 and today, which were shaped by the Franco-German conflict of that time. It is a story about forlorn love and a scattered family amidst the ups and downs of war, reconciliation and friendship.
