Offering

Offering is a short film created by filmmaker Aaron Henderson and interdisciplinary artist Mandy Cano Villalobos. Separated from her son during an artist residency, Cano Villalobos collected the last of her breastmilk and poured it upon the ground of an abandoned silo. Through this simple performance, the artist ritualizes her daily life, conditioned by postpartum depression, separation anxiety, and mourning.
