Letter to My Mother

A film that addresses and a film that shows a processing through media: a fearless and strong autobiographical examination. The filmmaker survived sexual abuse by a relative in his childhood. During that time he and his mother were working as non-actors on a film where they played themselves. The film depicted the desires of a child, it narrated about an ambitious young mother and the relationship to her son. LETTER TO MY MOTHER is Amin Mahers own film, addressing his mother. How is it possible to deal with the past? LETTER TO MY MOTHER chooses a radically intimate perspective. It is an examination that touches upon the center of the pain and that dares to look precisely. It finds exact scenes for despair and cruelty and searches openly for ways of coping.
