Family bonds are knit together in ever-complex relationships, influenced by history and heritage, tradition and expectations. In Héctor Abad’s The Farm, Colombian siblings wrestle with a legacy of violence that threatens their Edenic country retreat. Preti Taneja’s We That Are Young probes a family divided by power and rivalry in modern-day Delhi and Kashmir; while Perumal Murugan’s One Part Woman explores a marriage strained by familial pressure and rigid societal beliefs in southern India. Moderated by Jeanne McCulloch (All Happy Families).
