“The Family” is a major new eight-part observational documentary series that will lift the lid on family dynamics to build a revealing and intimate portrait of family life in Australia today. The Cardamone family allowed 35 remote-controlled cameras to follow their every move, day and night, for three months. The result is a no-holds-barred view of the dynamics and universal themes of family life. Dad Angelo, Mum Josephine, and their three boys – David (20), Stefan (18), and Adrian (14) – live in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. There is nothing unusual about them, except that they agreed to take part in this project. When we meet them, we find out Dad works in the construction industry, Mum in cosmetic sales, David is at uni, Stefan is in his last year of school, and Adrian is in Year 9. They have lots of friends and extended family who pop in. Over eight weeks, we watch their lives unfold; from exam results to birthday parties, from pizza nights to Christmas celebrations – the stuff of everyday life. But by allowing such intimate filming of their lives the Cardamones also reveal all that is behind the ordinary. The emotions, the tensions, the strengths and the weaknesses that shape the way we all behave. It
