SYNOPSIS

Synopsis written by 36th Kasseler Dokfest:
A film that addresses and a film that shows a processing through media: a fearless and strong autobiographical examination. LETTER TO MY MOTHER chooses a radically intimate perspective. It is an examination that touches upon the centre of the pain and that dares to look precisely. It finds exact scenes for despair and cruelty and searches openly for ways of coping.

Synopsis written by 35th Lovers Film Festival:
"A heartfelt letter to tell the mother the most painful of secrets. Amina, who in 2002 was the small protagonist of Ten by Kiarostami is now a transgender director who tries to make her voice heard, understood, and be understood."
