Director Bio

A filmmaker and journalist, Clare has spent more than ten years working on various social issues. Twice she has won the Simon Bolivar Colombian National Journalism Award. She was selected for IDFAcademy and Dok.Incubator, and her projects have won financial support from the IDFA Bertha Fund, the Tribeca Film Institute Fund, and the Colombian Film Fund (Proimagenes-FDC).

Body

This is the story of Val and Clare: a mother and daughter. After the tragic death of her eldest child, Val left her 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. Together they go on an intimate journey exploring the boundaries between responsibility and freedom, with all the guilt and sacrifice they entail.

Supported by Polish Audiovisual Centre Foundation.
