The film is like a spell or a promise for a new and more freeing type of family structure. Shot in Lithuania, London, and Edinburgh, the film features the artist and her children, as well as close friends, which she considers extended family. In the process of creating this new work, Nashashibi questions how a group’s sense of commonality is dissolved when there is an absence of communal experience and adherence to linear time.

Rosalind Nashashibi is a London based filmmaker and painter. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2017. Her films describe the qualities of experience between people and the contexts they inhabit. Nashashibi’s films fuse narrative techniques with observational footage, staged scenes flow seamlessly through real life, and the procession of images is interrupted with animation or music to allow a deeper understanding of the context.
