With shades of the Maysles’ Grey Gardens, Charm Circle is a cinéma vérité portrait of an eccentric New York family navigating the chaos that divides them. After uncovering a treasure trove of home videos documenting moments of love, laughter and musical expression that punctuated an otherwise tumultuous upbringing, filmmaker Nira Burstein returns to her childhood home – now crumbling from the inside out – to explore whether she and her two sisters can reconnect with her parents. Catalysed by the announcement of her younger sister’s polyamorous wedding, refuelled tensions threaten to sever what’s left of the family bond. Winner of Sheffield DocFest’s Audience Award, Charm Circle is a brave, wryly amusing and unpredictable personal study on the nature of family made with honesty, a steely sense of humour and love. 

An exclusive interview with director Nira Burstein will follow the screening.

Ticket also available for the Wednesday 2 February Opening Night screening.
