MOTHERS

by Milcho Manchevski

synopsis

A triptych from Macedonia: In part one, two nine-year-old girls addicted to mobile phones go to the police claiming they have seen an exhibitionist. Part two focuses on young documentary filmmakers making a film about the last two survivors in a remote village. Part three tells the story of the evil next door: several elderly cleaners – all mothers – have been raped and murdered. What links the three stories? Something that begins as fiction becomes a documentary as the film progresses.
