A mothers’ body (En mammas kropp)

The film received an honorable mention in the category New Doc in 2021. You can read more about this year’s winners here.

A poetic voice-over tells what the heavy work does to a mother’s body. How the chemicals lead her into the headache and how her hands crack. What does mom dream about? Does she dream of time? The time left when she has rested from her pains of work?  A film about the body’s drudgery of those who nurture, those who carry, those who assemble and those who clean.

Released on Tuesday 9 March at 18.00. The movie was available for streaming for 48 h.
