Mum’s Hair


Mum’s Hair


CATALOGUE TEXT
When Maja was 16 years old, her mother, the filmmaker Anita Killi, was diagnosed with cancer. Nobody knew what the outcome would be. But the whole family felt that a reservoir of good memories could help to survive the difficult time. A touching animated documentary was made out of the more than 2,000 pictures Maja took within a period of two years. A film that shows clearly that it’s not the hair that matters but the smile underneath.

Luc-Carolin Ziemann
