"For me, the most powerful aspect of the movie is the heartbreaking downward spiral of the mother. Unlike the other characters, who ultimately bring their suffering upon themselves, the mother is simply the victim of neglect, betrayal, and loneliness. For my piece, I wanted to represent the innocence and hopefulness of the mother in a way that contrasts with her dark and terrifying fate, while also representing her naivety and fragility."
