A Seat At The Table by Seriti Films

An association with the NY Times’ T-Brand Studio for Amazon’s hit show “Transparent,” this short film documents the inclusive custom of family dinner. By using a special split-screen style, we follow two very different multi-generational households as they prepare, cook, and gather for a meal, revealing the enduring power of food to bring us together.
