Following the death of a mother, a family set out on a spiritual boat journey to accompany her to “heaven”. In parallel, a documentary on the director’s parents and ultimately her mother’s passing unfolds. A hybrid of fiction and documentary, this intriguing debut blurs the distinctions between memory, fact and fiction in a quiet contemplation on life and death.
This screening is held in partnership with BIMI/Essay Film Festival
