SYNOPSIS

Mother is an emotional documentary of an arduous expedition set in the Arctic Circle National Wildlife Refuge, where the original name of this land before the government was established; the native name is “Izhit gwandaii goodlit,” Meaning where life begins. Mother is a testament to the majesty of Mother Nature in contrast to newly discovered friendship, survival, the resilience of the human spirit, and the raw power of SISTERHOOD. They arrive at a complex, intimidating, physically, philosophically, and personally daunting intersection facing conservation issues and themselves as women in this space. They will learn to survive and thrive on the strengths they’ve always carried with them. They will learn to embrace the exuberance of Mother Nature and adapt, evolve, and transcend . . . beyond the sense of self they once understood. This story is told in 5 different perspectives in 5 distinct voices and spirited conversations. The Arctic Circle National Wildlife Refuge is a magnificent stage. Together, they explore existential questions about the sacredness of belonging in the outdoors and the power of nature to heal and transform one’s soul. They find insights and answers to questions about how they, as BIPOC women, fit into nature, what role they can play in preserving our outdoor spaces, and advocating for the preservation of indigenous cultures guided by mother.
