SYNOPSIS

This singular cinematic experience is a raw cry from the heart to the director’s homeland of Lesotho in Southern Africa.

Shot on 16mm black-and-white film, Mother, I Am Suffocating. This Is My Last Film About You is a visually entrancing, experimental reckoning of the relationship between individual and nation. The film, through striking imagery and poetic voiceover, weighs the complex balance of love and hate that emerges out of relocation and the distance that allows for critical reflection of one’s roots. Innovative and inviting, Mother is a deeply personal and artfully told story that explores the tolls and possibilities of migratory displacement.
