Love, annoyance, jealousy...families can be hotbeds of many kinds of emotion. Documentary Some Kind of Love chronicles the contrasts between two very different siblings: artist, theatre designer and rampant hoarder Yolanda Sonnabend, and her brother Joseph, a pioneering AIDS scientist who moves to London to care for Yolanda as she battles dementia. The excerpt shows their relationship unravel as they struggle to share the same house. Yolanda died 10 months after the film debuted; Joseph died in January 2021 from heart complications. Thomas and Sumner Burstyn's documentary won invites to a number of festivals.
