Melancholy music film in black and white, with sand and silhouettes. About the loss of a mother, with her unexpected exuberance, but who also cries Puccini melodies. Inspired by Jeanne Goosen’s eponymous poem, recited by the well-known South-African actress Elize Cawood, to the aria O mio babbino caro from Puccini’s opera Gianni Schicchi, in a legendary performance by Maria Callas (1955).
Naomi van Niekerk is a multi-media artist and works in puppeteering, set design, performance and animation. She started as a performer and set designer but after having studied puppetry in France and touring her projects to festivals across Europe from Avignon to Bialystok, she now enjoys listening to podcasts while making stop motion films in her studio in Joburg.
