What began as a way for its filmmaker to escape his family situation turned into a method of confronting the realities at home. Photographed and filmed over a period of ten years, it is a search for meaning and closure.

“A deeply revelatory audiovisual essay on photographer Sohrab Hura’s relationship with his mother since her diagnosis of acute paranoid schizophrenia. A series of otherworldly still images document their daily lives with care and solemnity, focussing on memory and perception as imbued with a sense of unfamiliarity despite many of these moments feeling universal or relatable. The work expresses profound love through a striking and unshakeable commitment to documenting the best and worst of everyday life.”
