The Bee & the Great Mother


 

 

 

 

The Bee & the Great Mother (Grootmoeder, 2 min 3 sec, HD, with sound) screened at the School of Arts and Creative Industries, London South Bank University (September 2015).

This short film is set within and around the maternal structure of the home and depicts the interchanging generations, mother, grandmother, daughter. With a narrative structure it touches on sentiments surrounding sorrow, transience, and strongly evokes maternal instincts and the concept of ‘co-emergence’ (Bracha Ettinger).
