Boi Ima (Come Mommy)
Video
22:43 min.
2020

A woman-mother-wife observes herself and her family environment. Fragments of everyday life are exhibited from the mother's point of view, where she deals with immigration issues, desires for self-fulfillment, concern for parenting, relationship problems, fears, anger and insurmountable differences. The video aims to review the conventions that tacitly regulate the family world and in that, the role of women. This piece can be part of the tradition of auto-ethnographic stories or domestic ethnography (Cf. Sophie Calle, David Perlov, Stan Brakhage, among others), made by home-made cellphone and skype recordings., in which the author generates a process of self-reflection, examines through her works the critical aspects of domestic life and its relationship with social problems.
