Trailer - Mother and Milk
Finland | 10’
by Ami Lindholm
Mother and Milk describes the mental process of becoming a parent - imagined as a catastrophe film. When the baby is born the new mother has to give up the life she knew. A flood of breast milk covers everything - her home, work, friends, relationship and a good night’s sleep. Only after realizing she is a part of the eternal chain of generations, Mother is able to accept the situation and start living her new life in the family. The film’s humour is sharp but warm, and the disaster turns into a newly found acceptance of the change. The film talks about the important subject of breastfeeding in a hilarious and heartwarming way. Although babies are cute, the difficult situations, sleep deprivation and and negative feelings might come as a surprise.
