Family Portrait (feature drama, in postproduction, 4K, DCP, color, sound)

Family Portrait follows a sprawling Texas family in futile attempts to take a family picture. While the first half is rooted in “realism”, when the matriarch disappears and one daughter becomes desperate to find her, the film spirals into a suspension of time generated through formal abstraction; the act of taking the picture appears to become a solemn rite of passage.
