CAST & CREW Written, directed & edited by Jayne Amara Ross With Fabienne Mésenge, Orna Assouline, Mathieu Leblanc, Nick Alldridge & Frédéric D. Oberland Original Soundtrack by Frédéric D. Oberland with Gaspar Claus Cinematography: Jayne Amara Ross Assistant director: Frédéric D. Oberland Lighting technician: Michaël Capron SYNOPSIS: freemartin (n.): A sexually imperfect, usually sterile female calf born as a twin with a male calf due to the influence of male hormones during the development in utero. Merriam-Webster Medical Dictionary, 2007. The Freemartin Calf relates a day in the life of two women: a young girl and her mother, as they brave two very separate realities laced with a very similar pain, fueled by a dogged desire to both reject and conform to the societal roles imposed upon them. The film is a deliberation on the subject of the creative process: the importance of a belief in the invisible creative mechanism (represented by the female body), the angst associated with the inability to create and the part of us that we leave behind in the final product.
