Because We Have Each Other

Made over five years, Because We Have Each Other is a delightfully hyper-intimate feature from award winning Australian Director Sari Braithwaite.

A masterclass in slice-of-life documentary, the film embeds its audience in the life of a neurodiverse family in the forgotten working-class suburb of Logan. We partake in memories cherished, musings on the universe, and moments funny and dramatic, while also learning about each person’s vulnerabilities and deepest traumas.
This candid vérité footage, blends with hypnotic shots of night-time streets, pouring rain and multitudinous stars foregrounding the mundane and the magnificent of the everyday.

Tender and wondrous, it is a portrait of life, love and a family unlike any other.
