Andrea Testa • Argentina • 2019 • 66 min.
In the consulting rooms of a public hospital in Argentina, social workers dialogue with pregnant young girls, woman who has just given birth or ones that are hospitalized due to unsafe abortions.
Coming from the environment of extreme poverty and vulnerability, many of them are victims of gender violence. Hence their pregnancies discourage them even more to imagine a hopeful present or future.
“Mother-Child” reflects the desires, tensions and fears around forced maternity and clandestine abortion.
