Nota da Realizadora Director’s Statement
As an immigrant myself it’s important for me to convey through my films the hardships and challenges immigrants deal with through their personal point of view, their lack of identity and their longings for what was left behind. Through close and intimate filming consisting of framed shots around our home, together with the film’s cinematographer I chose to depict the process we’ve been through as immigrants in a foreign land, three generations of women dependent on each other while staying away from the outside world. In the absence of men at home, each one of us fought to be the one controlling the space, and during these moments is when we decided to film statically and let the one trying to take over define the movement versus the camera. One of the main themes I wanted to shed light on during the film was what unconditional motherly love is, and through my mother’s and grandmother’s absolute co-dependent relationship, through everyday moments, I encounter us at our most intimate moments and uncover the wounds of the past.
