MOTHER by Vlado Škafar

(90 min, Slovenia, color, 2016, Italian with English subtitles, world premiere)

A mother takes her self-destructive daughter to a deserted village in a foreign country and locks her in a house in the middle of nowhere. She takes her away from everything in order to bring her back to life. What begins as a mother’s desperate attempt to save her child turns into an increasingly miraculous spiritual adventure, restoring the deep feelings of life within her.

MOTHER is a companion piece to Škafar’s previous feature OČA (DAD) (Venice, 2010) in which a father reconnects with his young son on the sun-dappled fields of the Slovenian countryside. Nature as a safe place, where the noise of every day life dies down, where time and space takes on a different dimension.
