I asked my mother – an actress – to reenact her mother who I barely knew. But she remembers very little.
Mother of Mother recounts of scrappy memories and brittle family relationships of three generations, marked by absences and separations. Also by the effects of a war or – more generally – the influence of ideologies and conventions on conceptions of women’s and mothers’ roles, and how these are being passed on and reflected. Daily life thus coined is so unspectactular that it is perceived as normality.
