Freaks of Nurture, the extraordinary nature of the mother-daughter relationship

Freaks of Nurture |

Director and animator Alexandra Lemay has transformed her relationship with her mother into an irreverent and friendly animated short film. In the stop-motion short film Freaks of Nurture, a young filmmaker has no inspiration for the project she is working on and looking for, so comfort in the mother who is busy with her brother and is busy looking after her brother, but also four young children and four dogs that she has welcomed into her house.

The young girl who has sought her independence and wants to do everything on her own is the same person who, as soon as she needs it, seeks the support of her mother. Admitting that you can’t do it alone and asking for help from those who love you doesn’t mean being weak.

Watch The Ostrich politic HERE.
