Mother's Hands

This provocative experimental video depicts the trauma of emotional, physical and sexual abuse from a young girl's point of view. The video uses music, image, audio manipulation and minimal dialogue, propelling a powerfully authentic treatment of these issues toward a haunting conclusion.

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape, Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad, which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
