Best Picks of The Month

Released for UN World Water Day, Mother is a narrative environmental short film offering a cinematic and humanised journey into the effects of climate change.

The film presents Mother Nature as a physical being whose declining essence and being mirrors the state of her world.

As her world has suffered, so has she.

The lush vibrant ice worlds of Scandinavia show Mother ‘then’ when young, free and vibrant. This is juxtaposed with her in Australia ‘now’ when aged, ravaged and facing an unavoidable decline as her final journey sees her seeking understanding and acceptance of her fate (and that of her world).

Tellingly, the impact of the world’s suffering has been significant in prolonging the Production since shooting began back in late 2019.

In addition to the Covid Pandemic, the undulation between raging bush fires and record levels of rain and flooding in Australia have been highly impactful.

At a time when we cannot afford to delay our actions any longer Mother aims to connect with viewers in an impactful and engaging way that will speak to us all.
