Family Tree


Family Tree is the story of a family who don’t like each other, but find out that through thick and thin, they love each other. The family matriarch, Flora Hackney Jones, is challenged by her granddaughter, Kate to have a family reunion. Flora knew her children couldn’t speak two kind words to each other, less lone share a meal or party together. But Kate and her cousins manage to get almost everyone together plus some folks no one expects.

Director Karen Anderson tells the story of a family that uses the laughter that surrounds their lives to help them deal with the pain.  This short film will have you laughing, cheering and crying for the Jones, as they make you think of your dysfunctional family.
