She Who Lives

She Who Lives


‘SHE; who lives’ is a short participatory documentary exploring the hopes and fears of migrant mothers. Set in a day, the filmmaker is out on a journey on the local train to encounter other migrant mothers like herself. As they interacted, the memories of their formative moments began to unwind. The interactions grew into meaningful conversations sharing the layers of excitement, fear, courage, and the sense of responsibility that are attached to motherhood and migration. Struggling with the inner conflict of migration, the question is whether she, the filmmaker, ever feels proud of herself.
