This documentary benefits from a wealth of family photos, but more pointedly from home movies stretching back decades, allowing us contemporaneous glimpses of Arshad and his family instead of just recollections and interviews. He explores many dark corners of the family dynamics, including the fact that he was molested as a child, and that he wasn’t the only sibling with that experience, but without recrimination or bitterness towards his family. It’s a remarkable portrait, interesting and moving, and a well constructed film besides. MUST SEE.
