Everlasting MOM

Directed by Elinor Nechemya
Documentary Short
Israel | 14 min | 2017

A daughter’s fantasy of her mother, elusively portrayed at her own magical house and garden. The mother’s image and voice are deconstructed and assembled again into an intergenerational sonnet, reflecting the everlasting experience of being a woman, in a world of constant feminine evolution.
