Y Madre a la Vez

Four young women from are directing a film together across borders, which documents their transition from childhood to motherhood. Karoli and Christy, indigenous Shipibo teens living in Lima, Peru, embark on a friendship and collaboration with Khaldiya and Marah, Syrian teens living as refugees in Jordan—forming bonds of support, understanding and solidarity across great distance and cultural difference. They push one another to resist the cultural norms and narratives imposed on them and help each other find and reflect new definitions of home in the face of massive uncertainty.
