Liberty: an ephemeral statute

2020, Super 8 transfer to HD colour, sound, English spoken (EN, NL, FR, and NL/FR subtitles available), 37'

Stemming from a personal account of a search for liberation set in the US during the early 70s, Liberty: an ephemeral statute reflects upon post-68 desires for emancipation, emigration, and education through an impressionistic memoir and portrait of the filmmaker’s mother back home in Scotland today.
