Stories. We all have them.

Stories that have been told and retold over breakfast tables, barbeques, campfires, and drunken dinner parties. You know the ones. Epic and incredible family stories. Stories passed down through generations about warriors, princesses, ratbags, preachers and visionaries; stories that tell us where we came from and who we are. Maybe.

Conversations with Dead Relatives is a tale of family histories. An exploration of how these stories shape us, how they affect how we see our ancestors and, in turn, how we see ourselves. And like all good stories there are clashes of ideals, moral dilemmas, epic adventures and romantic tales of love and hope. But above all, these stories make us question our obligations to our ancestors. Is it enough to just tell their stories?
