Keeping Up with the Kandasamys

Penn Museum Second Sunday Culture Films

This year's Penn Museum's Second Sunday Culture Films, The Family Tree, explore family, ancestry, and connections as they take on different shapes and meanings, depending on geography, heritage, and culture. In what ways do values of the “family tree” manifest? And how do their common traits surprise and humble us?
