MDFF: Certain Mother, A

A CERTAIN MOTHER interweaves the stories of four women from across Australia as they navigate the challenges of parenthood - offering an intimate look into social issues, and a snapshot of motherhood today.

From the Dandenong Ranges, through rural pastures, to Sydney’s northern beaches - a single day unfolds for four women in the throes of motherhood. Whilst tending to the relentless demands of the day, they are determined to rise above the struggles that parenthood had brought close to them. Whether faced with disability, or their own anxieties, a weight-preoccupied teen, or the biases of others, they are forced to deconstruct and redefine some of our culture’s most sacred ideals.
