A Family Affair opening film at IDFA 2015

the personal struggle of the director Tom Fassaert (NL) with the femme-fatale of his family: the grandmother Marianne, former top-model, who left her family and lives in South Africa is the core of our 20014 participating project: A Family Affair. The film will compete in both IDFA’s feature-length documentary and Dutch documentary competitions and has become the flag-ship of this year’s festival, being selected as its Opening Film.

The filmmaker’s venture, which quickly becomes way more complicated than the filmmaker could ever have imagined opens in Amsterdam on 18 November, 2015.
