MOTHER addresses the complex and ideologically charged subject of motherhood. The film tells of joy and doubt, power and powerlessness, anger and love.
The basis for the project is documentary in nature. Eight women between 30 and 75 talk about their lives and motherhood. What all the women have in common is the realization that motherhood is a highly ambivalent experience. In the film, their documentary statements are visually brought together in a fictional character - portrayed by Anke Engelke. The actress integrates the women's reports into the laconic narrative about the everyday life of a woman and mother.
