Scars of Our Mothers’ Dreams

11m Documentary 2017

European Premiere

A unique, intimate glimpse into the complexities of parental migration through the lenses of children left behind. Growing up with absentee mothers on the island of Grenada, three people recount their intimate experiences of abandonment, psychological damage and the attempts to reconnect with their estranged parents who migrated abroad for work.

Uno sguardo originale e intimo sulla complessità della migrazione parentale attraverso gli occhi dei bambini che restano a casa. Cresciute sull’isola di Grenada con madri assenti, tre persone raccontano la loro esperienza di abbandono, danno psicologico e il tentativo di ristabilire un contatto emotivo con genitori lontani, emigrati all’estero per lavoro.
