About A Mother

2015, Dina Velikovskaya, Russia, 8 min.

In this touching African-themed fable, an ever-resourceful mother attends to her children’s needs, even after they are grown and on their own. Using minimalist black-and-white drawings and iconic images, director Dina Velikovskaya pays tribute to a mother's love, which proves more than a match for life’s many tribulations, large and small.
