Us, Mothers

An expression of the power of feminine sexuality:
Maternity was an expression of power, until patriarcal vision separated the fire of female sexuality to control its nature. in this shortsighted vision there is no place for the touch that creates the milk drip that is makes the love spread from one body to the other.

from the external control to the return of our own power, this movie reminds us of the pleasure of living our true essence.
