Synopsis

Someone puts a VHS in a videorecorder. As soon as the videotape is played, all kinds of television images appear on the screen, consumed by time and often unrecognisable. These are Beatrice’s childhood memories. Not only have the videotapes inevitably been ruined by time, but so have her childhood memories. This is the beginning of a journey in which the filmmaker processes some moments of her life and relives her relationship with her sick mother. Thanks to this painful quest, the filmmaker reconstructs her most intimate narrative in an attempt to rediscover what she had lost.

Director’s Statement

In hospital I hugged my mother and I realised that I could no longer smell her fragrance. I understood what I was losing and I began to search for some comfort in my childhood memories. I found some of my mother’s old video cassettes; they were alive and kicking but ruined by time. The images reawakened something I had forgotten.
