experimental movement film
12 mins 01 sec

A grieving boy moves across liminal spaces, queering time as he searches for someone he’s lost. Through this act, he must confront the tension and trauma within his body to find solace.

motherland is an experimental movement film generously commissionsed and supported by FORM (The Festival of Recorded Movement) in Vancouver, Canada. It premiered on September 17 2021 at FORM and will be submitted to select film festivals. 

Special thanks to Sarah Wong, Joshua Lam, Shiun Okado, Veron Xio, Sophia Wolfe, and Tamar Tabori.
