In my latest project, "Mothers and Daughters" I portray the complex and sometimes challenging relationship between a mother and her daughter. It is both documentary and biographical, as it also illustrates memories of my and my two sisters' relationships with our mother, and even her relationship with her mother. I chose to work with real mother and daughter pairs in their own environment, rather than with models or actors. I only needed to orchestrate the sitters moderately to show the essence of their emotional bond. We created their own small world together, at the same time, through the staging of the scene, reviving for me memories of my own family's relationships.
