A Living Legacy

Lion Family, then and now

Lion Family, then and now

Thinking about legacy, and the transfer of wealth, knowledge, and values to the next generation, and beyond?  Picture this:

It’s decades in the future and your granddaughter sits with her teenage son in front of a TV screen, or whatever device they’ll be using then. She tells him that she wants to introduce him to his great-grandparent.  A film starts playing, and over the next few minutes, you tell your story to your great-grandson. You conjure up memories of your childhood and family…

Meet Emmy-nominated, former PBS filmmaker Yuval Lion of MYLKmedia, and read his article published by the National Center for Family Philanthropy about his experience making a legacy film for his family: The Value of Making A Family Legacy Film.

It’s inspiring and will help you contemplate how such a film can enhance meaningful connections across generations of your family.
