FAMILY AFFAIR is an uncompromising documentary by Chico Colvard, which explores the complexities of a family subjected to enormous trauma, the depths of suffering a parent can inflict on his own children and yet also the remarkable resiliency that some people can muster even in the face of all this. The film is a meditation on forgiveness, on grace, and on the capacity of the human spirit to find love and meaning under the worst of circumstances. It was the first film to join OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network)’s Documentary Film Club. ** Sundance Film Festival 2010
