Directed by Victoria Campbell, 'House of Bones' won Best Documentary Award at Irish International Film Festival in 2011. It also won Best American Documentary Award at Chagrin Falls Documentary Film Festival in 2010.
'I love the film. It’s beautiful' says filmmaker Albert Maysles.
'House of Bones' is true to life as it offers a compelling view of a family, a house and a way of life on the verge of dramatic change. It’s quite an achievement says Tim Miller of Cape Cod Times.
'House of Bones' is about Campbell’s family and its large, old summer home on Martha’s Vineyard’s West Chop. It begins with Victoria, pursuing a career as an actress in Los Angeles, hearing that her grandmother, the family matriarch, has died. She returns to the Vineyard for a final summer at the home – the center of activity for years among the extended family – before it apparently will be sold.
