Mother Europe

Mama Europa

Slovenia/Macedonia/Croatia, 2013, Colour/B&W, 90 min

Mama Europa is a humorous, creative documentary about the borders of Europe and those whose lives are closely associated with them. It is a thematic sequel to the creative documentary The Grandmothers of Revolution. Through the personal view of the director Petra Seliškar and her four-year-old daughter Terra, the film takes us on a journey around Europe, to visit some of its remaining non-Schengen borders. We uncover the realities of life along these borders, the problems they pose for the locals and the things that they do to cope with these problems.
