In The Making, Longlist - Personal


Amaal Mustafa

Radiance Pictures, Komnene

mother/land' is a dance film in which I wanted to investigate the intersection of my empathy and my anger-- specifically the arena within which homeland and parentage come head to head with identity and self-realization. Through the written poem, the volatile performance and the jarring soundscape, I hope the viewer too can explore a feeling of the unsettling and perverse gravity.
