“If you were to make a film on your family, what would you make it about?” This homemade, amateur documentary follows the filmmaker’s family in their day-to-day existence. Lubnah carefully prompts questions into their pasts to explore the intergenerational impact of her parent’s stigmatized marriage. Documented over a year, between Rajasthan and the UAE, this film attempts to hold the weight of the unsaid.
