HER MOTHERS

Hungary. 2020. 75 '. Documentary. VOSTF.
Director: Asia Dér, Sári Haragonics

In Hungary, Virág and Nóra, decide to build a family in a country where it is illegal for lesbian couples to adopt. Following their long journey strewn with pitfalls on a daily basis, the two directors Asia Dér and Sári Haragonics show us their desires, their emotions and their anger in the face of the growing wave of hatred and homophobia. As they finally welcome little Meli into their home, intimate tensions begin to manifest ...

A moving portrait of a lesbian couple in the midst of the adoption process, this powerful documentary traces the acclimatization of the two women to their new roles as mothers, by highlighting their doubts and questions, as well as the new definition of roles within the household. . To this very intimate facet are added many political elements which give this deeply humanist work richness and depth. A magnificent tale of love and freedom!
