If you're a parent or have ever been a part of a family (so pretty much everybody), come and see Real Art Way's presentation of Hillerbrand + Magsamen. This video gallery, opening on September 11 and ending on October 28, is comprised of not one but two films that work collaboratively to create a different view of family life in America. How? By deconstructing our preconceived notions of the family through a suburban discourse, where family dynamics, life in suburbia and consumerism are discussed through the lens of the camera. Sounds complicated enough, just like all families.
