Family Pack or Que faisaient les femmes pendant que l'homme marchait sur la lune? is a 2001 French-Belgium drama film, directed by Chris Vander Stappen.


July 1969. After two years in Canada, Sacha is back in her small city in Belgium. She has two disruptive news to provide to her family. The first is that instead of being married or at least engaged, she has a lesbian Canadian girlfriend, and the second is not better : instead of studying radiology in Montreal, she abandoned the studies despite the fact that her family had made huge sacrifices.



The movie was first screened to the Chicago International Film Festival in 2000. Before it was released, it was also screened to the Turin International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (Italy), in 2001.

In 2002 it was screened to the Febio Film Festival (Czech Republic) and to the Japan International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (Japan).
