In her beautifully nuanced, deeply personal documentary RELATIVE, Tracey Arcabasso Smith journeys across four generations of an Italian-American family as they uncover their shared experiences around sexual trauma, mostly for the first time, with unapologetic candor. Stirring home movies shot by the filmmakers’ grandmother cinematically create a backdrop that weaves individual stories together across the shifting landscape of time. The intimate and poetic exploration reveals enduring connections and an honest window into what it looks and feels like to break the silence on trauma. Each conversation gives way to the intricacy of human experience.
