Being My Mom
festivals & awards:
It’s a scorching day in a deserted Rome: mother and daughter are walking non-stop, dragging a large suitcase. The couple seem to be seeking one another, fleeing from each other, inverting their natural roles in continuation. Until, with just one gesture, the unexpected epiphany of their love is revealed before them.
Being My Mom is a metaphorical walk in the existence of two women, a mother and her daughter, two protagonists of nothing but their lives. We are watching them by chance; two creatures participating in existence, inessential for the world but essential for one another. It is a study of the bright and obscure paths of maternity and progeny.
