About this submission
"A Mother's Soliloquy" is an experimental short film revolving around the cyclical nature of addiction, recovery, and relapse. The story follows a recovering alcoholic as she attempts to reconnect with her estranged son, tracking her journey through the steps of recovery. Told without dialogue, Soliloquy combines contemporary dance with a nonlinear narrative, stylistic world-building, and a deep, electronic score, relying on the human body as its own form of expression. The film explores the inner psyche of recovering addicts, shedding light on the emotional pain and familial disruption associated with addiction.
