Letter to my Mother

Letter to my Mother

LETTER TO MY MOTHER chooses a radically intimate perspective. It is an examination that touches upon the center of the pain and that dares to look precisely. It finds exact scenes for despair and cruelty and searches openly for ways of coping.


Director Bio

Amina Maher is an Iranian queer filmmaker whose works deal with themes of social taboos and gender-identity in relation to violence and power structure.
