Pathway: Daughterhood

    • set 13 items

    Relations of power, admiration, affection, care and neglect are seen through the microcosm of a family. The films in this pathway are rich in temporalities and latitudes, often crossed by politics, memory, illness and love. By investigating the dynamics and division of roles between girls and women with their father and mother, the filmmakers offer an intimate look at the world through the prism of the female experience.
