â€œThe Watershedâ€ is a poignant and powerful feature documentary about the disintegration of an upper-class family â€“ The Trunks. The film chronicles how a couple living the American Dream with seven children could suddenly break up, leaving their kids to literally fend for themselves in a cold, empty house without food or transport in the listless suburbs. Mixing classic Super 8mm home movies from when the family was still together, from the 50â€™s to the 70â€™s, with modern-day interviews, â€œThe Watershedâ€ is a harrowing story of abandonment and miraculous redemption, with a remarkable lack of rancor. â€œThe Watershedâ€ is an award winning documentary with more than 10 Best Feature Documentary Awards from over 30 Film Festivals around the world.
