A Living Legacy
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.
