Brothers and Sisters (1997)


A lecture by scientist Frank J Sulloway about sibling behaviour is intercut with interviews in which a range of brothers and sisters, young and old, including an only child, express their social responses to sibling relationships. Some historical photographs and home movies are included.

Curator’s notes

Brothers and Sisters is a straightforward documentary that offers an insight into family behaviour. Producer Sonja Armstrong’s credits include Heat in the Kitchen, Helen’s War, 15 Minutes to Rock and The Fortune Teller.
