M(e)&M(other) - Dance film
“Being an artist and mother is not a fixed identity.” Joanna Sokolowski
What if motherhood would become a part of our career?
The short film "M(e)&M(other)" is about the role of the artist and the role of the mother - these are placed next to and against each other, compared, evaluated. The Frankfurt choreographer and dancer Raimonda Gudavičiūtė speaks openly about her inner conflict: in practice it is always difficult to be both a committed and caring mother and a creative artist. The short film also sensitively reveals the position of her 7-year-old son Elias.
