“The unrelenting demands of being a mother and the unforgiving demands of being an artist one could suppose might often collide and divide. At the same time, the filmmaker’s art seems particularly suited to a presentation of that shared perceptual encounter with the world, to the remembrances, the anticipations, and the fleeting moments of childhood – and of parenting. That the filmmakers/mothers represented here were able to integrate these aspects of their lives in fully resolved works is a triumph of life and art, leaving a record and expression of their experiences and insights that can reverberate with and enrich our own.”
