Next of Kin - Preview

Next of Kin

Preview by Jack Foley

CATATONICALLY unhappy with this family life, a young man named Peter Foster (Patrick Tierney) undergoes video therapy with hi parents.

One day, while studying tapes at the hospital, he sees the tapes of an Armenian family who feel guilty about surrendering their own son, while still an infant, to a foster home. Peter decides to present himself to this family as their lost son, to finally act out a role different from the one assigned to him in his own life.

Filled with haunting images of travel and displacement, Next of Kin reveals both a young WASP’s response to working class Armenian culture and discourses on the range of roles that life allows us to play.

Released in 1984, Atom Egoyan’s Next of Kin stars Patrick Tierney, Berj Fazalian and Sirvart Fazlian.
