Tumbling out of nowhere, between the blazing sun and scorched roads of the American desert, comes Ma. Played by director and choreographer Celia Rowlson-Hall, she is a contemporary, enigmatic version of the world’s most famous mother.
This re-telling of the Virgin Mary’s story is signposted by a conception Ma did not choose in a strange and unwelcoming place, and told through movement and without dialogue.
With masterful cinematography by Ian Bloom, Ma is a study in the visual poetry of the human body, and ignites conversations about spirituality, motherhood and gender.
It is co-presented at IPF 2016 with Filmme Fatales.
