Rebecca Jane Arthur - ‘Liberty: an ephemeral statute’ (2020, 38’)
Through an intimate portrait of her mother, Rebecca Jane Arthur tells us about the socio-political context from the early seventies. The essayistic work reflects on post-’68 desires for emancipation, emigration and education. It’s an impressionistic portrait of the filmmaker’s mother who currently lives in Scotland.
Eva Giolo - ‘A Tongue Called Mother’ (2019, 25’)
A Tongue Called Mother depicts the relationship between language, gestures and family relationships. The filmmaker meditatively captures the actions and words of three generations of women from the same family. The tactile observations alternate with images of children who learn to read through the use of repetition.
