A film by Sara Broos 76 min
A personal film about a mother and a daughter, exploring the innermost rooms of the human mind with a soundtrack that totally draws you into the story.
On her mother’s 60th birthday the director organised a trip to a spa resort hoping that they would come closer to each other, which eventually did not happen. Instead she made a very intimate and poetic film about a mother and a daughter, dealing with both surface and depth, art and illness and female psychology. Slices of life and psychotherapy mixed with pain and humour and carried out by means of the camera, her mothers paintings and archive material from an unconventional home. How close can we get? How well can we really know each other.
