The Mother


Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dirs. Antoine Cattin, Pavel Kostomarov. 2007, 80 mins. Digital projection. In Russian with English subtitles. After suffering abuse at the hands of her violent husband, Lyuba flees to the countryside with her nine children, where she struggles to earn a living and care for a family increasingly fragmented by time, poverty, and crime. Shot over three years, The Mother is a landmark in observational cinema, looking unflinchingly at people enduring socio-economic hardships while letting the fullness of human experience and emotion shine through.
