Vintage: Families of Value

1995, 72 min, color, sound

Vintage is a meditative and reflexive look at black families through the eyes of black lesbian and gay siblings. In contrast to traditional documentaries, Vintage places the camera in the hands of family members to construct a collective autobiographical presentation of family. Interweaving conversations among family members, verite documentary footage, dramatic portrayals, experimental recreations, visual abstractions, music television strategies and archival photographs, Vintage is a mosaic of extended black families.
