Film Description:
"Somewhere in between dream and reality, this autobiographical film [Post-Partum] is inspired from the post-partum depression my mother suffered shortly after giving birth to me. I decided to make a film in order to revisit our past, with the three central women who were touched by this depression (my mother, my grandmother and myself). Symbolically, these women are universal because there is no face to post-partum depression."
-- Marie-Josée Saint-Pierre (source)
