"[A] deeply humane, life-affirming experience."


- Video Librarian

Pomm is a nurse in Thailand who works at a care facility for Europeans with Alzheimer's. Her work requires her to provide care while being away from her own children. Maya is a mother in Switzerland whose family has made the difficult decision to move her to Thailand so that she can receive the best care for her developing condition.

Mother highlights to immense sacrifices made by and for mothers in order to provide what's best for them and their families. It also highlights the global and economic imbalances still being perpetuated between the global North and South, despite an extended period of decolonization. A fascinating and moving examination of Motherhood in both the personal and universal, Mother is a film sure to stick with viewers long after it ends.
