My Mother’s Voice | La Voix de ma Mère
Synopsis: I am not lost but I am angry at my mom. I lost it. Confused by my experience, my feelings mark a subtle inner turning point in which I find myself in a sort of interrogation with myself, having only the unconscious and absolute representation that has become my ultimate place of safety. Are my memories real? Or are they merely a movie that I made up for myself? Isn't what I have become just a multitude of mixed voices that are not mine and that shaped me? I am telling you about my constraint, the liberation of which is more and more difficult.
