Official synopsis

Set in a dystopian world, a young girl runs for her life while cameras broadcast the action. A declaration of love to the memories shaping our dreams.

The programmer’s eye

In Kajika Aki Ferrazzini’s refined universe, with soft contours and beautifully flashy hues, one witnesses a skillful alternation of rhythms. Like in “Battle Royale”, where manhunting offers entertainment, the film sits alongside its little heroine, whose courage mingles with despair in the face of a world that feasts on cruelty. “Mom” finds its strength in the memories of perfect love that warm the heroine's chest and concentrate all her hope, like a last sign of humanity. — Laura Pertuy
