Mothers of Me

Directed by Alexandra Grimanis
Canada, 1999 (documentary / avant-garde, 15 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"[Mothers of Me is] a visually glorious, abstract study in which the filmmaker explores, partly out of fear, the women in her family, their history of insanity and their response to a repressive environment. Through the use of close-ups and fragmented compositions we are compelled to participate in her examination."
