World Premiere
Director Nicole Brending Attending

In this provocative and kaleidoscopic personal documentary, Nicole Brending turns the traditional joyful narratives about parenting upside down as she fearlessly contrasts the social norms with the darker complexities of contemporary motherhood, postpartum depression, and even infanticide. Blending performance with reality, she reflects the conflicted consciousness and the porous experience of time in the early months with a newborn child.
