Alice, Year 13

Featuring my own poetry, 'Mother Bird' is about the pain that a mother passes onto her daughter, and more broadly about the unavoidable pain that comes with being a woman. The film is inspired by the raw, autobiographical nature of Frida Kahlo's painting 'My Birth' and Sylvia Plath's poem 'Morning Song'. It explores postpartum depression, self-hatred and the complex relationship between mother and child.
