COMPETITION SCREENING 10: The Other Side
Mother's - dir. Hippolyte Leibovici, France 2019, 22’
The documentary paints a portrait of a drag family from Brussels spanning four generations during an evening backstage. As layers of makeup and alcohol erode away the masculinity and feminize them their hearts begin to open. Difficult subjects are addressed (suicide, coming out or maternal love, for example), the jokes merge and generational misunderstandings inevitably insert themselves in discussion.
