The Accident

Joseph Lovett’s documentary feature, The Accident, is a personal film journey, a search for the ‘real’ lives of his long-dead parents whose memories linger as little more than snap shots. In the film, Lovett re-enacts the accident that killed his mother and interviews his siblings to reconstruct the psychological history of his family. Stephen Holden of The New York Times described Lovett’s creation as “a subtle, ultimately enigmatic family portrait.”

The film made its world premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival.
