di Clare Weiskopf

(Colombia / 2016 / 80’)

Clare's sister died. That’s when Val, her mother, took off – a double blow that Clare could never come to terms with. Until she became pregnant: she decides it’s time to seek out her mother, to understand. She ventures into the Colombian jungle and, together with her partner Nicolas, arrives at Val's house determined to reconstruct the journey of self-discovery from which she has so far been excluded. What was Val looking for, what did she run away from? At what cost for Clare and her brother Diego? And what was the price that Val paid? The journalist, twice winner of The Simon Bolivar Colombian Journalism National Award, takes us on the intimate investigation of life handed down from mother to daughter in an overwhelming flow of emotions, in the heart of an untouched wilderness.
