READ MORE: Rotterdam Innovates for its 45th Film Festival
In 2010, filmmaker Vlado Škafar made “Dad,” a contemplative drama about a father reconnecting with his son that played at the Venice Film Festival. Years later, Škafar has returned to complex family relationships, this time examining the bond between mother and daughter with “Mother.” Škafar’s companion piece will be premiering at the the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) in February. Indiewire has an exclusive look at the film’s hypnotic, ethereal trailer above.
The film deals with a concerned mother who tries to save her self-destructive daughter by taking her to a deserted village in a foreign country and locking her in a house in the middle of nowhere. This desperate act soon turns into an increasingly miraculous spiritual adventure, restoring the deep feelings of life within both of them.
Check out the trailer above.
