secrets and jealousy bubble to the surface

UK Film Council, Film London and Channel 4 present a Fifty Nine Productions film.

A family portrait session goes horribly wrong as secrets and jealousy bubble to the surface under the photographer’s watchful gaze.

A Family Portrait was written and directed by associate artist of Fifty Nine Productions, Joseph Pierce, and develops the live action rotoscope technique employed on the award winning short, Stand Up.
