Fellowship Project: Woman > Mother deconstructs, rebuilds and expands upon the traditional definition of what it means to be a “WOMAN” and how that is inextricably tied to being a “MOTHER”. The film examines the narrative that women in our world are defined by where they fall in the spectrum and timeline of motherhood; that we are tied to and classified by the answer to the question, “Do you have children?”. The stories of women are much broader than the picture that has been painted. WOMAN is more than MOTHER.
