My 2020 turns the lens around to tell the filmmaker’s personal story about what matters most in life. Set against the backdrop of unprecedented disruption, Peter’s mixed-race family gathers to navigate a pandemic, political upheaval, and isolation, together. It’s a touching narrative about aging, love, and the importance of connectedness.
