Little Family Conversation, A

French actress Helene Lapiower steps behind the other side of the camera to shoot this intimate documentary about her working-class Jewish family who immigrated to France from Poland decades ago. Originally intending to preserve images of her family's background and culture, which was slowly slipping away, she began a seven-year odyssey that yielded so much more.

A Little Family Conversation is a complex portrait of a multi-generational Jewish family. While most of her family members still consider themselves Jewish, the younger offspring are no longer religious, with many marrying outside the faith and culture. Lapiower's poignant film centers around the rips and tears within a Jewish family that is haunted by the question of identity.
