Sinossi / Synopsis (italian and/or english): 
Family History is a handpainted animation that examines how each new experience is filtered through our perception of previous ones and explores the particular psychological space where motherhood and daughterhood intersect. The process of creating Family History on a single sheet of paper by repeatedly painting new images over old becomes a metaphor for life itself. Though the previous images are buried, they remain integral to the meaning of the piece.
