Terrible Mother, The (1972) 16mm, color, 25.25 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Environment & Nature

In the kitchen of a Vermont farmhouse four people come to sit around a table. The silence of solstice holds them together. Before a ritualized meal they each tell a story. Their stories are ominous, yet, as in PART ONE, they are incomplete. Earlier, the Terrible Mother has passed on her powers to a young woman. At the close of the film this young woman enters the farmhouse and with final simplicity restores the old order.
