A mother wonders if she can get through to her daughter. The daughter tries to imagine how her mother used to see life. How can you capture some­thing like this? An exper­i­mental attempt at rapprochement.
When I see pictures of my mother when she was young, I see a woman who doesn’t need me. When I wasn’t born yet, her art was every­thing to her. I became impor­tant only later. I would have liked to meet her back then. Or would I? She seems so inde­pen­dent. Would she have liked me?” Hesi­tantly emerging, dreamy images comple­ment the conver­sa­tion between daughter and mother about the making of the film. I still don’t know what you’re looking for”, the mother says. The truth?” No.” That’s good.”
