Relativity is the show where we tell family stories. Siblings Lauren Schiller (of Inflection Point) and Michael Schiller (of Reveal) investigate family myths and legends through human stories that take us through surprising and pivotal moments in history – from the invention of television to the birth of the modern art movement in New York City in the 1930s; from the labor movement and first-wave feminism to the Warhol Factory and the psychedelic summer of love.
What makes someone a relative? Is it how they are connected to you by blood, by experience, by marriage? Each episode explores how those closest to us have shaped our culture and affected our lives; through betrayal, redemption, separations, fame, money, rivalry, blindspots, sacrifice, humiliation, inspiration and love.
