Go deep into your families history

Ethel-family documentary

A great family movie transcends the normal limitations of “sharing” about ones family. It can create a strong emotional impact that can touch even those who don’t know the family. There is a lot that goes into that equation.

 Recently, HBO ran the documentary “Ethel” the piece on Ethel Kennedy, done by her daughter Rory. Regardless of politics, this piece is very well done.Through the interviews in the piece, a powerful narrative is carried. The large amount of archival materials available also makes it historically rich. 

  A strong prototype for us to strive for here at Homage Films.  Family ancestry deserves to be documented in a special way. Web sites like ancestry.com are showing the wave of interest that exists from families in exploring their family and documenting family roots.  When we take on a family project, we can elevate that story into a powerful historical document worthy of the family name.
