Liberty: an ephemeral statute

in production / HD colour, stereo and 5.1 sound, English

Liberty is an experimental documentary reflecting on post-68 desires for emancipation, education, and emigration. Revolving around a personal account of a search for liberation set in the US during the early 70s, the themes of changing socio-political climates, emancipation of young women, family communication, interconnectedness and the constant conflict between connection and disconnection overlap three generations of women–grandmother, mother and daughter.

Expected completion date December 2019 – January 2020
