Mother's Milk

2022 | Documentary | 18" | Serbia |

In the hills of western Serbia, Dragica begins her workday on the farm by milking her cow. It is the journey of the milk into food that reveals her dedication to her family both past and present. Dressed in black, in the wake of her mother’s passing, Dragica battles with the weight of legacy that has been handed down to her. As she provides for loved ones a cloud of doubt hovers above her, continue in her mother’s footsteps or leave behind that which was bequeathed to her? Observing her ritualistic labour and devotion from sunrise to sunset, we are taken on a journey within the confines of her fences. Mother’s Milk is a tender meditation on motherhood and the chains that bind us together. 

 

Mother’s Milk was completed over 10 days with a crew of international filmmakers as part of the Interaction Student Film Camp.
