MY MOTHER SAID
Female Director(s), Documentary
In this day and age, when everything is documented and even cell phones have cameras, there is one woman who has no souvenirs or photos of her beloved mother. Meet Elena Bautista, Filipino and 99 years young! In this experimental documentary, Elena reflects on her long life, her mother's death, and her own impending death, which she faces fearlessly. The only thing she laments is not having any physical remembrances of her mother, but even so, Elena's story reminds us how powerful a souvenir one's memories can be.
