Muttererde/ In Search of My Mother’s Gardens

Jessica Lauren Elizabeth Taylor - 2017 Germany - 45 min

Müttererde calls for femme forms of ancestral history in the face of the often interrupted historical knowledge of the African diaspora in Europe and elsewhere. What are rituals, teachings and abilities passed on from our matriarchs? How do these inherited skills serve us or inhibit us today? The conversations with six black femmes on the knowledge and non-knowledge of their mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers and as far back as memory carries them create a rich and powerful archive.
