It is through a series of portraits, of people leaning their faces over her belly that the artist proposes a diversity of stories and reflections on motherhood, parenthood, the desire –or not– of having a child, descent, and childhood. And if they’re stunned by the rise of violence, they nonetheless stay united in their sorrows as well as their joys. Their strength is catching, and it’s what we desperately need in these times and days. A power of love, of revolt and of hope to keep fighting for a better society.
A film about queer parents, identity and family constructions. Entirely shot using smartphones, the film proposes an intimate journey, told via sensitive, fun or moving words, a contemporary family album of director and her baby to come: Aria.
