In the award-winning documentary Family Affair, first time filmmaker Chico Colvard offers an intensely personal examination of his own troubled family history. At 10 years old, Colvard accidentally shot his older sister in the leg. This seemingly random act detonated a chain reaction that exposed his sisters’ sexual abuse and shattered his family. Thirty years later, Colvard ruptures the veils of secrecy and silence again, as he bravely visits his relatives and revisits the past.
