Great-grandma sits by the Christmas tree alone, smoking a cigarette. The men gather in the bedroom to watch porn while the women alternate between holding the baby and the vodka bottle. Addiction, clearly, is only the start of this family’s issues, which Dustin Guy Defa has chronicled by culling material from old home videos. The poor visual quality only helps. —SH
