Mute Love
MUTE LOVE is a feature-length narrative film about three generations of African-American women who are trying to mend their fractured relationships. Mavis is a twenty-three year old recovering drug addict who has been clean for a year, but is struggling with an HIV diagnosis. She has not seen her mother Anna in the seven years since Anna kicked her out. Although there is great political and social resonance in Mavis's HIV infection, this story is essentially about a family of women--mothers and daughters who attempt to negotiate their differences.
Reviews
“Mute Love is a simple and effective character saga about three generations of black women...Patrice Mallard celebrates the mundaneness of life with uncomplicated camera angles and realistic dialogue. The film is a slowly paced and amazingly unsentimental study of women coping with life's joys and pains.” - Matt Williams, WeeklyWire
“Patrice Mallard's Mute Love takes elements of Daughters of the Dust -- including actress Barbara O -- and infuses them into an absolutely contemporary story about three generations of African-American women negotiating broken bonds and old wounds.” - Filmmaker Magazine
