Film details

Introduction

Eccentric artist-filmmaker Billops’ films are collaborations with and about the women in her family. In this film, she touches on the conflict between artistic and maternal instincts as she recounts her search for the daughter she gave up for adoption.

Candid interviews and archival footage are placed against jarring instances of comic relief with musical performance and early experiments in scripted reality.
