Mother (2019)
First screened in October 2019
Director: Kristof Bilsen. Documentary about a Thai nurse, her white Western patients at a memory-care facility, and her strained relations with her own family.

Twitter Capsule: Emotionally piercing doc about family, caretaking, loss, and more. Expertly shot and cut. No platitudes or simple binaries.

VOR:   Distinguished both by its ability to coax out global themes and resonances from its direct-cinema approach and by its visual beauty and sophistication.
