AMAZONA

82 min. 2016, Colombia

Directed by Clare Weiskopf

This is the story of Val and Clare: a mother and a daughter. After the tragic death of her eldest child, Val left her kids and family behind and escaped into the Colombian jungle. Thirty years later, when Clare becomes pregnant, she decides to confront her mother, heal the wounds of the past, and try to define motherhood on her own terms. They go on an intimate journey exploring the boundaries between responsibility and freedom, with all the guilt and sacrifice they entail. Both women create their own pieces of art of living.
